Statement of Purpose
The Ephesian Primitive Baptist, located in Nashville, Tennessee is accepting resumes for the position of “Pastor.” The church is well established and is in close proximity of Fisk University, Tennessee State University, and Meharry Medical College. Our location provides uniqueness as it relates to community outreach.
For nearly 80 years, our church has been a spiritual home for people of all walks of life and their families in the Nashville area. It is our aspiration to continue meeting the spiritual needs of the community. Ephesian is comprised of persons who are well versed and diverse in biblical knowledge. 1 Corinthian’s 12:4 states, “There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.” We use our spiritual foundation to grow in the knowledge of “God’s” word and to strengthen our faith both individually and collectively.
Our Sunday school department is one of the key rudiments to longevity; it serves as the foundation for our Christian growth and development. We use curriculum that is strictly “Biblical” based for all ages. The vibrancy and tenacity possessed by our youth and young adult divisions are nothing less than exquisite.
We are a church who is “God lead and Holy Spirit driven.” Worshipping corporately plays an indispensable role in rekindling our spiritual fire. We, the members of Ephesian Primitive Baptist Church truly believe that true worship brings together “God’s word, prayer, and fellowship.”
