Our Culture

Culture matters. If you had the best palm tree seed and planted it in Middle Tennessee then it would never grow. Why? Culture matters. At TMC we believe we intentionally create the culture so that everyone is able to belong, participate, and reflect.


Unapologetically Authentic

We are who we are at the risk of not being who people think we should be. We are known by God so we are free to be known by all others.


Everything is about the Gospel 

We point to Jesus’ death and resurrection in all that we do because who He is and what He’s done is the true hope we have. 


Make Yourself at Home 

Come as you are and belong before you believe. TMC is a better place with you in it.


TMC is cool but TMC isn’t ultimate 

We know you will love TMC but the church isn’t TMC.  You and I are the church.  We celebrate our church but we are devoted to God and one another.


We give space for grace 

We share the truth lovingly, we point to scripture unapologetically, and we give grace the space to work.


Speak life, laugh a lot

We have the best news so we are the happiest people you can meet. 


We not Me 

We were made for community so we lay down “me” for the sake of “we.”


We Always move Forward 

You are accepted as you are but because of the grace and mercy of Jesus we must move forward. His love is not an excuse to remain the same, it’s our motivation to become more like Him.
