The Holy Spirit is alive and present at Iglesia Presbiteriana Nueva Vida! Our vibrant, multinational Latino church celebrated its fifth anniversary in 2017.


Nueva Vida shares the church  building of the Glencliff Presbyterian Church and is supported as a new church development by the Presbytery of Middle Tennessee.


We are a family of believers from Spanish-speaking nations all over Central, North and South America, as well as the Caribbean. We enjoy an average worship attendance of eighty-five, with lots of children and young people to liven things up!


There’s always something to celebrate at Nueva Vida. Whether it’s a monthly shared meal after church—or a holiday—or a special occasion for a member—or a celebration marking a milestone in the life of the congregation—there’s always a warm welcome and plenty of food to share with visitors.


Our church does its very best to serve our beloved community, and we do our best to create a life together that is free from fear and full of the hope that is promised to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.
