About > Churches

There are four churches located within the city limits of Nelson, including one that predates the incorporation of the town by nearly three decades.

Early settlers of the area constituted the Bethesda Baptist Church in 1865. The church is located on Bethesda Trail just off Reavis Mountain Road. Two other Baptist Churches include the Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church on Pickens Street constituted in 1910, and the Nelson Baptist Church located on Kennesaw Avenue and constituted in 1912. Also, located at the corner of Kennesaw and Blue Ridge Avenues and in the structure that formerly housed the Nelson United Methodist Church, is the Nelson Worship Center, a Congregational Holiness Church.

Several other churches of various denominations are located within a two to three mile radius of downtown Nelson, including Mount Calvary Baptist Church, Cool Springs Baptist Church, Fairview Baptist Church, Tate United Methodist Church, Ball Ground United Methodist Church, and the Gospel Temple Congregational Holiness Church. In addition, Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church is located within five miles of Nelson at the intersection of Highway 108 and Refuge Road.
