Lay Down The Downside & Ride On Life’s Upside!

Learn 2 lay down the downside and ride on life’s upside!

Decide to glide on life’s upside!
Learn to ride astride the tide
Of the warm and uplifting current
Of Christ flowing as a Guide inside you.
Push aside all emotional downdrafts
That misguide or chide or deride you.
Don’t be denied your ride with the Son!

You can’t fly with one foot on the ground.
–You can’t follow Christ with one foot doing your own thing.

“No one truly knows Christ unless he follows Him daily in life.” –Hans Denck (16th Century Anabaptist leader)

body of Christ each one a part of it

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” –1 Corinthians 12:27
–In the body of Christ, we are called to train one another to “glide on life’s upside” and to “ride the uplifting current” of the Holy Spirit. If you are a part of the body of Christ, then your thoughts and insights are important! When the body of Christ gathers for worship, are you welcome to share what God is showing you? Not in most church services.
–However, at The Salvation Army Berry Street we welcome each part of the body of Christ to show and tell what God has done as they are prompted by the Holy Spirit! Come and see — every Sunday morning at 10:45, 225 Berry St., Nashville 37207.

2 testimonials about Berry Street:

“Berry Street Worship Center is as close as I’ve seen so far to the first church. The senior pastor is Jesus. It’s led by Steve and Ernie Simms. There’s teaching at 9:30 worship at 10:45. After worship they wait on Holy Spirit to speak through the Body through words of wisdom, prophecy, prayer for the sick. It’s awesome!”  –Cliff and Kim Farrell (Sons of Thunder band)

“Berry Street has wrecked me as far as the traditional church model. I come away knowing I have been in the presence of God, where He has freedom to do what He wills that day. It all flows so beautifully.” –Penny Fowler Major

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 @
