On February 1, 1981, the Metropolitan Interdenominational Church held its first Sunday service — or celebration, as they call it.

The founders of the church are D. Billye Sanders and Rev. Edwin Sanders. Observing denominational and political division amongst the Christian community, they decided to found a church where all were welcome. Their guiding principle is the Bible verse John 3:16, which reads: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

D. Billye Sanders and Rev. Edwin Sanders see “whosoever” as a “mandate for inclusion,” which has inspired decades of activism. Their work has made a difference in the lives of Nashvillians and people across the state. In this episode, we’ll talk with this powerhouse couple about their lives, their mission and what calls them to serve others.

This episode was produced by Magnolia McKay and Elizabeth Burton.
