Greater Bethel AME Church

"Where We Are All in the Family" 



About Us:


Greater Bethel AME Church takes its inspiration from Mark 16:15 “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." We are "Moving Forward" in his presence with our dedication to spirituality and to winning souls for the Kingdom.


Oh how easy it is to get lost! With our cell phones and Ipads, our 24-hour news cycles, there’s virtually nowhere to go for a moment of peace and quiet.


That’s where Greater Bethel AME Church can enter your life. We provide a holy place of respite in the tumult of life. So come, put aside the cares of the week and find yourself in the presence of God at Greater Bethel AME Church, 1300 South Street, Nashville, Tennessee 37212.
