In 2003, a group of people had a vision of a church on the west side of Franklin, TN. With God's providence, and with the help of several congregations, West Franklin Baptist Church was born. For ten years WFBC served the surrounding community. After a series of transitions it became apparent that West Franklin could be more effective for the gospel ministry under the leadership of Brentwood Baptist.
In June 2014, West Franklin Baptist's members voted overwhelmingly to become "The Church at West Franklin: A Regional Campus of Brentwood Baptist." With our new vision, direction, and name we are poised to make Jesus greatly known in the West Franklin community.
Our congregation is made up of people from all over Williamson County of all ages and different stages of life. The mission of the church is the same at every campus location—engaging the whole person with the whole gospel of Jesus Christ anywhere, anytime, with anybody.
What We Believe
Our mission is to engage the whole person with the whole gospel of Jesus Christ anywhere, anytime, with anybody.
Simply put, we believe that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Everything we are and everything we have comes from Him and works together for His purpose. And so we worship Him.
We believe that the Bible is God’s true and perfect Word. It is our road map for navigating this journey we call life. And so we actively pursue discipleship of Jesus through the study of the Scriptures.
We believe that Jesus came into the world not to condemn the world, but to save it. We believe that we are most like Him when we show love for one another through relationships and through service.
Our Multi-Campus Model
A few years ago, Brentwood Baptist Church leadership recognized the value of regional campuses in multiple communities throughout the greater Nashville area. In 2010, the church established its first regional campus—The Church at Station Hill. In 2014, three additional campuses—The Church at Avenue South, The Church at West Franklin, and The Church at Woodbine—joined the Brentwood Baptist family. In 2016, our fifth regional campus, The Church at Lockeland Springs, was added, and in 2018 The Church at Nolensville will launch.
The mission of the church is the same at every campus location: engaging the whole person with the whole gospel of Jesus Christ anywhere, anytime, with anybody. Every campus shares this same DNA through a common mission, vision, and message. However, each campus has the flexibility to contextualize ministry to its unique community under the leadership of its own campus pastor.
The Church at West Franklin's governance structure falls under that of Brentwood Baptist Church. It is based on the biblical principle that the local church is an autonomous, self-governing body of baptized believers and is accountable to God for its decisions and actions.

What to Expect
Our atmosphere is a safe, welcoming place for all people. The minute you walk through our doors you'll be greeted with a smile and experience a warm, family-friendly environment that is pointed directly to Jesus.
Our pastor's straightforward approach is this: to teach the truth of the Bible for the purpose of transforming lives. By digging into Scripture and providing application, we encourage our people to be hearers and doers of the Word.
We sing corporate praise to God using theologically rich music, including hymns and praise songs from our past and present. We have a choir or praise team led by our band each week and we love adding members to our choir.
