Emmanuel Church has been a part of the Donelson Community in Nashville for well over thirty years.  Emmanuel is a part of the Emmanuel Churches of Christ, an organization that has been spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ for almost 90 years in the US and around the world.  Our church is Pentecostal by denomination; we are Apostolic in doctrine.  Emmanuel Church in Donelson is led by Bishop Ronnie Banks who is also the General Overseer of the Emmanuel Churches of Christ.  Pastor Gary Ratliff serves the congregation and our community as Associate Pastor.

We consider it an honor to share the truth and love of Christ with our community.  It is our desire to see lives transformed through salvation that is only available through Jesus Christ.  Additionally, we want to aid individuals in their pursuit of complete obedience to His Word and a greater spiritual maturity.
