At Midtown you will discover a group of real people dedicated to Jesus and seeing Nashville changed by the Gospel. Midtown is one church in four neighborhoods across our city.

Are you wondering what to expect when you visit one of our Midtown congregations? Though each site has its unique personality, there are a few common traits across each campus…

Teaching grounded in Scripture and pointing to Christ

Clear communication of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is our first priority. Our Sunday worship services are specifically designed for you to hear the Gospel.  In 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. Paul declares and defines the Gospel:

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, what he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.”

Midtown is about the Gospel – the Gospel message is of first importance to us. Jesus is the hero of the story and the centerpiece of the entire Bible. The Gospel invites us to follow Jesus, be changed by Jesus and go on mission with Jesus.

Excellent music designed to lead the entire congregation in worship

You may visit one of our congregations and wonder where the worship team is. This is because they are often off to the side so they can lead without being the focus.

A casual atmosphere

Attire varies from person to person.

Intentional service planning

Though we are causal in attire, we are reverent and intentional in how we put together our worship services so that they expound and apply Biblical truth in the lives of Midtowners.

An invitation into community

Midtown’s Discipleship Groups are relational gatherings of 4-16 people who are committed to maturing in Christ together.  We believe this is the best environment to build deep, biblical community and desire that all Midtowners would enter into that community.

Flaws

Though we strive for excellence, part of our confession of faith is that we are a people in process— people who need a Savior. Because this is who we are, we fail, we struggle and we hurt one another. We rely on the grace of God and the redemptive power of repentance and forgiveness to grow us and heal us.

A love for our amazing city

Midtown is a church in Nashville for Nashville. We love this place, and want our existence here to be for the good of our hometown.
