From its beginning in 1903, Bellevue has had a long history of ministering to Memphis and the Mid-South, and even around the world. We believe God placed Bellevue in Memphis for a reason.


At Bellevue, Jesus is the reason for it all. The Bible tells the truth of Jesus Christ coming to Earth, living perfectly, dying on a cross, and being resurrected from the dead. He is the reason we have hope and purpose in life. If you have a personal relationship with Him, the Bible says, “whoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Our Beliefs

Here at Bellevue, we believe Jesus is the only way to Heaven. There’s no need to guess or wonder what we believe because we will be 100% honest with you. To learn more about what Bellevue believes, teaches, preaches, and lives out, click the link below!
