Welcome to Middle Tennessee's Messianic, Hebrew Roots community
Welcome to Middle Tennessee's Messianic, Hebrew Roots community
Lamb Fellowship began as a small home group in 1994. Over the years, this group grew and encompassed several home fellowships. This growth resulted in the congregation that we have today. Fueled by our desire to teach Biblical truth and meet the needs of those who have committed to walking with us, we continue to grow in the strength of our unity and His love.
Today, we are a body of dedicated Believers who seek to serve His Kingdom and one another. We embrace His Torah and our Messiah, the Living Word. Through faith and by His Spirit we seek to establish His word as the standard for living within our congregation. All who share our desire for truth, relationship, accountability, and the love of Messiah are welcome.
Moving forward we hope to have significant impact on the lives of His people, Israel. Our desire is to develop true disciples of our Master, Yeshua. We realize that this is a process that takes time and commitment from all involved. Our faith is to be alive in real, tangible, every day action.
Lamb Fellowship is led by Scott and Jane Diffenderfer with the support of many elders and leaders.
Lamb Fellowship meets every Saturday.

In 2012, we were given the vision to strengthen our efforts to better serve believers the greater Nashville community. To this end, we have begun Lamb West, a Messianic, Hebrew Roots church in the Nashville metro area. The mission of this congregation is to encourage believers to lead Biblical lives. We have been blessed to see the Father use this group to unite and strengthen the Nashville community.
Lamb West is led by John and Melissa Diffenderfer with the support of a wonderful community of believers.
Lamb West meets on the first and third Fridays of every month.

We believe in the Creator of heaven and earth whose name is Yahweh. "Hear O Israel, Yahweh our God, Yahweh is One" (Deut. 6:4). The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are united in God (Is 11:1-2, Lk. 4:18-21).
We believe in the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testament in their original, inspired text. They are the inspired and inerrant Word of Yahweh Almighty. They alone are the divine and final authority in determining all doctrinal truths (2 Tim. 3:16).
We believe that Yeshua of Nazareth is the Messiah, God made manifest in the flesh (1 Tim. 3:16). He was born of a virgin (Luke 1:34) and lived a sinless life. He died for us an an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1 John 4:10), was resurrected from the dead (1 Cor. 15:4), and has ascended to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19). Yeshua will return physically as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to reign over the earth (Zech. 14, Acts 1:9-11, and Rev. 19:11-16).
We believe that all have sinned and need the salvation, which is provided only through Yeshua and by the grace of Yahweh (Ps. 14:1-3, Rom. 3-23).
We believe that the Holy Spirit dwells all believers to lead, guide, teach, comfort, and empower us to live a righteous life (Jn. 14:26, 2 Tim. 1:7, 1 Cor. 14:26).
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and unsaved. The redeemed to everlasting joy in the presence of Yahweh, and the lost to eternal damnation and separation from Yahweh (John 5: 28-29 and Revelation 20:11-15).
We believe the Torah of Yahweh is the instruction of a loving and gracious Father to His children. It is the perfect law that gives us liberty (Ps. 119-44-45, James 2:25-26). The commandments of Yahweh will not disappear until heaven and earth disappear (Matt. 5:17-20). We delight in the instruction of Yahweh (Ps. 1:2). The Torah was not given for salvation. It is the loving instruction of how a redeemed people should live. Yeshua kept His Father's commandments and lived in the Father's love. We are instructed to walk as Yeshua walked (1 John 2:3-6). We are to obey Yahweh's commandments and to hold to the testimony of Yeshua (Rev. 12:17).
Family is at the heart of this fellowship. We encourage people to accept all the blessings that Yahweh has given them, children included. We believe that strong families are the building blocks of His Kingdom. Most of our families home school their children out of a desire to train them up in the way they should go. We do believe that this part of the spirit of Elijah moving in our world today "to turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers..." (Malachi 4:5-6).
We also believe that each family is its own entity and, while part of the congregation, each family has a leader who is accountable to Yahweh for how they live out their faith. We respect Biblical headship within the home and encourage parents to lead their families and teach their children the commandments of God.
We believe that worship is a vital part of a Believer's walk. While the expression of worship may vary in each individual, the heart to worship must be the same.our involves music, dance, instruments, and singing.It also involves study. The study of His Word is a form of worship that we take seriously.
We worship to draw closer to our Creator and give Him all that we have. Worship is between the one who worships and the One who is being worshiped. It is not a show, yet is both personal and corporate. Our desire is to be a body of believers who worship Yahweh in Spirit and in Truth.
Through Messiah's atoning sacrifice, we are part of Israel. We are from the seed of Abraham's faith and heirs of the promises given to him by Yahweh. As followers of Yeshua who have been empowered by His Holy Spirit, we have a deep love for the land, people, and Scriptures of Israel. We support Israel through various methods and are very focused on current events in the land of our forefathers.
LAMB Fellowship and Lamb West are collections of families and individuals who truly care for one another. We laugh and cry together. We attempt to meet each others' needs in small and large ways. While separated by geography, we are spiritually united.
Congregations are not buildings or systems. Congregations are the people who walk in faith together. We are blessed to have two wonderful communities, LAMB Fellowship in Watertown and Lamb West in Nashville. Each congregation is as unique as the individuals and families from which they are comprised. Together, these two individual communities are united in serving the Father's people in Middle Tennessee.
Our sense of the larger community of Believers continues to grow as well. Through our association with the Messianic Covenant Community we are in contact with like-minded people throughout the world. We strive to encourage them as much as they continue to encourage us. The Messianic Covenant Community provides us with accountability and a sense of being part of the greater community of faith in the body of Messiah.
