We are in Fellowship with Calvary Chapel Association and you may read our Statement of Faith here

Our first service was held on Resurrection Sunday, 2012 with seven families, many of us sent out from our home church, Calvary Chapel Rivergate in Goodlettsville TN where the Vanovers were on staff for over ten years.


We meet in a rental at the home of Cottage Cove Urban Ministries, a Christian after-school program which is essentially set up like a school with kitchen, classrooms, and playground, and it is quite adequate for our needs.


Since Nashville is such a diverse city with over 100 people groups represented, our fellowship includes people from Ethiopia, Egypt, Lebanon, Sudan, Mexico, Uganda, Vietnam, The United States, Burma, Puerto Rico, Liberia, China, and Korea. Needless to say, our Monthly Fellowship Meals are quite remarkable! The variety of languages spoken by our congregation gives us a unique opportunity to  reach many in our city. We can see that Nashville is positioned to reach the world by reaching out to those who have come to us. 


Those who worship with us come from all walks of life -- musicians, writers, laborers, technicians, students, educators, salespeople, health care workers, and homemakers. Half our folks are under 35, so we have a growing nursery!  


We do not have official church membership  but welcome all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and the only Mediator between God and Man. We practice open communion for all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and we teach Believers' Water Baptism.


Our Worship Team has ministered at Homeless and Transition Ministries for men and women rejoining society from prison.


So far, we have participated in Missions trips to Mexico, Russia, Kenya, and China. We look forward to more opportunities as The Lord opens the doors. 


We see The Lord faithfully meeting the needs of the people He loves so much in the Downtown/Metro area of Nashville.


If you think God is leading you this way, pray and ask the Lord if this is the fellowship He would have you call home.  As God calls a pastor to plant a church, He also calls a congregation of individuals and families. We are encouraged to see the fellowship slowly growing in numbers and steadily growing in maturity.


Calvary Chapel Nashville is the second Calvary Chapel that the Vanovers have planted. The first one was Calvary Chapel Princeton, West Virginia  where they served for seven years from 2000 - 2007.
