About Harvest Bible Chapel Nashville Central

Church Description:


Harvest Bible Chapel Nashville Central is a non-denominational, multi-ethnic, Bible believing family located in the Antioch district of Nashville, Tennessee. Our mission is to worship Christ through impactful church services, walk with Christ through dynamic small group studies and fellowship, and work for Christ through active evangelism and tangible service to our local membership and the surrounding Antioch community.  Our prayer is that the Lord will grant us favor in building a church that makes disciples and is reflective of what Heaven is going to be like.


We are committed to essential spiritual activities we call our “Four Pillars” that together identify the corporate vision for the church.  1) Proclaiming the authority of God’s Word without apology (2 Timothy 4:2); 2) Lifting high the name of Jesus through worship (John 4:24); 3) Believing firmly in the power of prayer (Ephesians 6:18); and 4) Sharing the good news of Jesus with boldness (Ephesians 6:19-20).
