We believe in the only true and living God, Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit; who is holy love, eternal, unchangeable in being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth. 

Nathan, with eyes full of tears, trudged down the aisle under the weight of his sin at age nine in a church in Ridgetop, TN. God was always pulling on Nathan, yet it was not until the last year in high school that he remembered that his life was not his own. God quickly restored Nathan’s heart, sending Kate into his life.

Over the next several years, Nathan sought places to serve whilst raising a family, working full time, and seeking his Bachelor’s degree. There were many times when Nathan struggled, yet God continued to pull on his heart, leading him forward. God used trials to sharpen, hone, and break Nathan so that he could be remade into the pastor God knew he could be. Nathan
graduated receiving a Bachelor’s Degree from Williamson Christian College in 2012.

After college Nathan settled into a routine. Church attendance, serving as a Deacon and teaching Bible Study, became his way to serve, however secretly he was avoiding the call God had placed on his life. In 2015 with a single blow, God humbled Nathan, answered his prayers, and applied life altering pressure. A diagnosis of Diabetes at age 30.

In the five years since, Nathan has sought more diligently to answer the call. Leading his family of four to focus on God, preaching regularly at the Nashville Rescue Mission, filling pulpits when available, teaching the Bible, and following God where He leads. It is this focus, passion, and call that has led Nathan to Mt. Denson.

I hope that you are as excited as I am for Mt. Denson, our people, and the community. God is so awesome and wants to do amazing things. We just have to be willing to allow His leadership and His Power. Come, let us join together and worship the One and only, Almighty God.

-Nathan Barnes


Through Jesus Christ, God frees persons from the shackles, oppression, and shame of sin and sinful forces, from the guilt and penal consequences of sin, and enables them to have free access to God. This freedom, rooted in love, not fear, enables persons to become who God intends them to be, to bear witness to their Lord, and to serve God and neighbors in the vocations of their common life. 


Believers who seek to know and to do the will of God, and who live in him as he lives in them, may in this life be assured of salvation and thus rejoice in the hope of fully sharing the glory of God. 


By the covenant with Abraham and his descendants according to faith, God has established the church in the world through his Son Jesus Christ. This household of faith, the universal church, consists of all those persons in every nation and every age who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and who respond to his call to discipleship.


Mt. Denson Church is of the Cumberland Presbyterian tradition. We are a community of faith, trying to live without labels, welcoming all, being Christ's presence.
