Our Story

Ridgedale has served in the Chattanooga community since 1908. A daughter church of First Baptist Chattanooga, the church originally met in the Ridgedale community of Chattanooga until that property was purchased by McCallie School in the early 1990′s. We completed a move to our current location on Hickory Valley Road where the church meets today, and have been blessed in our current location to be able to expand the ministries that we offer to the community.

While we celebrate our past, we also realize that we must embrace our future.  Our ministries to the community have changed over the years, and will continue to.  Whether through mission trips, ministries, or simply getting to know your neighbors better, we hope you are a part of the continuing impact that God has planned for Chattanooga through His people at Ridgedale.
