Welcome to Valley View Baptist Church

Hey Neighbor,

A teacher of the law once asked Jesus which of the 10 Commandments was the greatest. “‘The most important one,’ answered Jesus, ‘is this’ ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these’” (Mark 12:29-31). It’s a simple, yet profound statement. To put it in an even simpler format: Love God and love others. We, your neighbors at Valley View Baptist Church in Nashville, are striving to live out that simple theology. We are a family of believers in Jesus Christ. I know you hear that word, “family,” used by almost everyone, but at Valley View it’s really true. Come see for yourself. We are a small fellowship of friends united by one love…Jesus. We provide family friendly fellowships, God-honoring-inspiring worship, challenging and applicable Bible Study & ministry opportunities that seek to meet the needs of our local and world community. If you’re looking for a place of worship that will inspire you to connect with God, a Bible study atmosphere to teach you more about Christ Jesus and a ministry that will help equip you for greater biblical service, we’re the place for you. We’d love you to browse through our website to find out more, or to come in person for a visit. We’ll treat you like one of the family.
