The World’s Greatest Valentine


The World’s Greatest Valentine is regularly carried in East Nashville, Tennessee (The “Blood & Fire” Salvation Army Flag) — the red stands for the blood of Jesus; the yellow star represents the fire of the Holy Spirit; and the blue reminds us that God calls us to daily follow and obey the living, resurrected Jesus Christ.


If you would like to experience the greatest love — the love of the living God — surrender your will to Him and begin to follow and obey Him daily.  Read the world’s greatest love letter (the New Testament) every day for at least 5 minutes.  Find some passionate (on fire) Christ-followers and begin to hang out with them.  Soon you will be overwhelmed by God’s amazing love.

If you are in Nashville come and visit The Salvation Army Berry Street, a weekly gathering of Christ-followers that meets with no sermon.  Instead we allow everyday people to show and tell what God has done.  The results are always amazing.  You can feel Christ’s presence in the room.

Check it out on Sundays at 10:45 at 225 Berry Street, Nashville, Tennessee, 37207.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
