Who We Are

As we seek out genuine opportunities for others to engage life with dignity, strength, and health, Nashville Rescue Mission works in community collaboration to provide hope for today, tomorrow, and eternity.

We are driven by the desire to share the Gospel, and we strive each day to spread this unending message of hope.


In 1954, the Mission opened its doors to provide food, clothing and shelter to homeless men in the Nashville community. In 1968, the Mission expanded to meet the needs of the increasing numbers of homeless women and children in the community.

Nashville Rescue Mission is a Christ-centered community dedicated to providing hope for today, tomorrow and eternity to the hungry, homeless and hurting in Middle Tennessee.

Mission Statement

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.
