All Saints’ vision is not just for a great church, but also for a great neighborhood. We hold a positive view of the city as the most strategic place for Christians to live, grow and minister. We are committed to the peace of Memphis and we see church growth and city growth as symbiotically related. Consequently, we desire to be a loving community where Jesus Christ is lifted up, people are accepted, relationships are real, and individuals are mobilized to help and heal the needs of our communities.
We are part of the Midtown community in Memphis, and we want to share what it means to be a Christian. We don't try to pretend to be better than anyone else. Anyone who wants to know more is openly invited to come. There will be other people there, who are very much like you.
The name “All Saints” has historically been associated with the Catholic and Episcopal traditions. It indicates a celebration of the named saints within those Christian traditions. We have chosen the name in order to reflect our conviction that God declares every person who comes into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ a saint. We have received the perfect righteousness of Christ and stand before Him no longer condemned, but loved and accepted as perfect in Him. We also acknowledge the encompassing nature of our name. “All” does not indicate everyone without discretion, but all types of people – socially, racially,ethnically, culturally – are accepted into the community of the Church through their profession of Christ.
All people are welcomed to come and hear and receive the free offer of the gospel and the free extension of grace by Christ. We invite everyone to come without hindrance or inhibition and see that through the compelling message of the gospel of Jesus Christ we are all saints in Him.
We are excited to be part of Midtown Memphis. It is our hope that All Saints will be the place that you can come to experience life, ask your questions, and grow in an understanding of what God is doing and what He wants from us.
