Located in North Alabama, we are in downtown Huntsville with a heart for ministry to this city we call home. We are a dually-aligned church to SBC & CBF... often referring to ourselves as centrist Baptists. Huntsville has recently been named by U.S. News and World Report as the 3rd best place to live in the U.S. With an estimated 25,000 jobs coming to Huntsville in the next few years, we are truly in a phase of rapid growth with a national spotlight. Through this process, the city is being very mindful to make itself attractive toward a broad audience - paying particular attention to the growth of our music industry. The city recently underwent a music audit with the intention of crafting a detailed plan to create an environment that will cultivate music talent within the region. With rumors of the return of our long term music festival “Big Spring Jam” and developments such as our new 8,000 seat outdoor amphitheater funded in part by Mumford and Sons, Huntsville is a force to be reckoned with and is rapidly becoming the “it” city in which to live.
We look forward to hearing from you…
