Primitive Baptist Church and Family History
Research Assistance for Davidson County, Tennessee



On May 23, 1838, a group of Primitive Baptists constituted the Baptist Church of Nashville. In the summer of 1850 the church built a meeting house on College Street (now Third Avenue) and the church became known as the College Street Primitive Baptist Church.


In 1915 a portion of the congregation were granted permission from College Street Church to constitute Bethel Primitive Baptist Church. The first meeting house was at 714 Gallatin Road. In 1965, Bethel Church built its present meeting house at 3810 Gallatin Road. This church is now identified with the liberal movement.
