How It All Began in 1900
Over one hundred years ago, the pastors of thirteen churches in and around the city of Nashville were challenged by the evangelism, missions, and special needs of this growing area in Middle Tennessee. Their churches were individually determining ways to meet the challenges, but in May and June of 1900, the Lord was moving them towards a new relationship with one another! It was becoming increasingly obvious that together they would be able to accomplish much more than they were able to do separately. The idea for a new Baptist association was born. Meetings were held, a constitution was adopted, and on October 26, 1900, the new association was named Nashville Baptist Association!
Where We Are In The 21st Century
Today, churches in and around the city of Nashville are still challenged by evangelism, missions, and special needs of this growing area in Middle Tennessee. It is over one hundred years later and it is still true that churches together can accomplish so much more than individual churches are able to do separately.
Over the last few years, the ethnic population of Nashville has grown to include 70 different people groups, many of whom have yet to hear the gospel. We no longer have to go overseas to reach the world – the world has come to us, and it is our vision to reach out and build relationships with these people in an effort to bring them to Christ.
We are excited about what God has shown us. We pray that you will partner with us as we resource churches and missions and God’s Kingdom work is advanced.
