About Us

Nashville Rescue Mission is a Christ-centered community committed to helping the hungry, homeless, and hurting by providing programs and services that focus on a person’s entire life—physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, and social.

We are devoted to restoring the whole person through a Christian approach that helps the homeless and addicted learn how much God loves them and gain the biblical insight they need to lead a productive life in and for Christ.

History

Established in 1954, the Mission first opened its doors to provide food, clothing, and shelter to homeless men in Nashville. In 1968, services were expanded to include women and children. Today, the Mission serves over 800 men, women, and children on a daily basis. We are driven by the desire to share the Gospel, and we strive each day to spread this unending message of hope.

Our Core Values

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the eternally inspired, the only authoritative, inerrant, and infallible Word of God.

  • We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in the Deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father, His present reign and His personal return in power and glory.

  • We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, and that men are justified before God on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace through faith alone are we reconciled to God and thereby receive eternal life.

  • We believe God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and turn from their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life.

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of all true believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one Body, the Church.
