When you pull off of Old Hickory Boulevard onto Hadley Street, you enter “The Village,” one of Nashville’s best preserved historic districts (and best kept secrets). As you make the turn, you feel yourself begin to relax. Century old houses in this walking community give the appearance you are stepping back in time, but be prepared to take a big step forward in your spiritual life. In these calming, cheerful surroundings, caring people gather each Lord’s Day to build each other up in the most holy faith. The Old Hickory Church of Christ is a great place to call “home.”

What to expect
When you visit the Old Hickory Church of Christ, you will find friendly people who are passionate about following the teachings of the Bible. We are committed to doing things biblically because we believe obedience pleases God and improves you. We call that a 10:10 life (John 10:10). Here are some examples of this commitment:
Our Name - We are Christians. Nothing more, nothing less. What better name could there be?
Our Worship - We gather to worship with our family every first day of the week, the day of our Lord's resurrection.
Our Communion - Like early Christians, we meet around the Lord's table each Sunday to partake in a moving memorial to our Savior.
Our Singing - We sing in the simple, beautiful manner taught by the apostles and practiced by the original church (a cappella).
Our Governance - Like first-century churches, we are an autonomous congregation overseen by a loving group of men called elders.
Our Morals - We follow Jesus' teachings about human relationships including the permanence of marriage between a man and woman.
Our Mission - We share the love of Christ by seeking the lost, serving the poor, and sanctifying the saved.
