Our core theology is Jesus.
At Harpeth Hills we strive to be known as a church that embodies Jesus in all we do, serving those in need, leading people to Him, and strengthening believers. We’d love to have you join us anytime.
Harpeth Hills Church of Christ is a multi-generational family of believers in Jesus Christ. Our heritage and history are rooted in the fellowship known as Churches of Christ. While we honor many of the traditions from our heritage, our primary commitment is to the Bible and walking in the truth, grace, and freedom that Jesus Christ has offered to everyone.
We want to be known as a church that embodies Jesus in all we do, serving those in need, leading people to Him, and strengthening believers.
What we believe:
Our core theology is Jesus, meaning we believe salvation is found in Jesus and Jesus alone. We are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8) and meet Jesus in the waters of baptism. We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and is the only guide for our lives.
When we gather on Sundays, we always observe the Lord’s Supper which reminds us that we stand in need of a savior. While we do not follow the liturgical church calendar, we almost always focus on the birth of Jesus during December and the resurrection of our Lord around Easter.
