A sizzling quote from Francis Bacon

These words from Francis Bacon sizzle!

“If we are to achieve results never before accomplished, we must expect to employ methods never before attempted.”

At The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center in Nashville, TN, we love this quote and try to live it. Many churches use the same ole methods week after week. However, we’ve been meeting together for 6 years and no two meetings have ever been the same. It’s amazing. We come together and ask people to listen to God and then to say and/or do whatever He tells them to. The “methods” that come forth in each week’s meeting are many and they are life-transforming.

Here’s another Bacon quote:  “By far the best proof is experience.”

At Berry Street, we don’t ask people to “just believe” because we say so.  Instead we ask God to show up and show out in such a way that everybody present, not only “believes” but knows that He is real and wants to follow and obey Him for the rest of their days.

And if you get bored with traditional church, you will love Berry Street.  Bacon said:  “The only really interesting thing is what happens between people in a room.”  Berry Street is about what God does through everyday people as they obey the New Testament “one anothers” in a room with each other.  What happens always amazing, moving, and life-changing.

So if you want to experience some sizzle in your soul, come visit us:  Sunday mornings at 10:45 and/or Tuesday nights at 6:00 — 225 Berry Street, Nashville, TN 37207.
