Believers Baptist Fellowship - About Us

Our Story

Believers Baptist Fellowship was the first church in the Nashville area to affiliate solely with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. It was organized by individuals who dreamed of free and faithful Baptists coming together to build a church where God is honored, each believer is his or her own priest, the local congregation is autonomous...

In 1991, Christ's love compelled a group of courageous women and men who supported Baptist principles to form the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Twenty-five years later, we celebrate this founding and our bright future together."Christ's love compels us" is our 25th Anniversary theme, taken from 2 Corinthians 5:14, which says: 


"Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all." From our foundations to our future, Christ's love has compelled the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship to live into our vision to be a national and global community bearing witness to the gospel in partnership with Christians across the nation and around the world.


Join us as we celebrate our founding and our future!
