“Poor Diversity”

Bellevue Baptist Church
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I relocated to Memphis from growing up and living in various cities out west. I quickly learned how backwards Memphis is in terms of race relations. There are many efforts to resove the issues and I won't use this forum as my way of addressing the issue. However, it is my feeling that a church as large as this (HUGE!) should be doing more to try to diversify itself. I attended a holiday show and a service there and was shocked at how "white-washed" it was. I now attend another very large church in the city that is taking many efforts to not only diversify, but to minister and address the negative cultural issues this city has. Bellevue, in my opinion, celebrates it's non-diverse congregation and seems to want to keep it that way.

This is" the" Memphis Mega Church. If you’re not a super Baptist this is not the place for you. They pretty much just want your money so they can spend it on themselves and make their Mega church bigger. If you want to go to a nice church pick a smaller one where people care about you.

This is def a must see at least once in a lifetime. Just gorgeous. And the church grounds themselves are very lovely. Have also attended several womens conferences here and always a pleasant time. Not one thing bad could I say except maybe be in shape becuz this place is huge

Twice a year, my family and I visit Belluvue. They have an Easter and Christmas program that is equal to any huge major film series. Large church but small enough to have a warm welcome.
