Believers Baptist Fellowship - 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 bild a church where God is honored, each believer is his or her own priest, the local congregation is autonomous, and where cooperation with other Christians and Christian groups is normal--all done in felowship of love.


A group of individuals first began meeting in the fall of 1998 in Madison, TN and called Dr. Tim Rayborn to be their pastor. The Believers Baptist Fellowship moved to Hendersonville in 1999 and was constituted a church in January 2000, with bylaws and carefully planned ways to work together in an orderly cooperation.
