Who_We_Are.jpgOur Members

Our members are from every background, nationality, ethnicity, and walk of life with one devotion in common: the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We believe in celebrating and valuing cultural and ethnic diversity as we work, fellowship, share, and pray together as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Our Church

Our church is lead by a leadership team made up of shepherds for each ministry (campus, youth and family, singles, marrieds & parents) along with our full-time evangelist and women's ministry leader. With the help of our small group (family group) leaders they have been given the charge of equipping the brothers and sisters to spread the gospel of Christ, as well as helping one another mature in Christ. These small groups meet in homes for Bible Study, fellowship, prayer, discipling, and outreach and are our primary medium for building and growing the family of God.

We also have a Board of Directors for the oversight of the finances of the Church.

Our Mission

The Knoxville Church embraces the commission of Christ to “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” From our very beginning, we have been committed to making disciples both locally and around the world. We financially and spiritually support missions in South America and have a special relationship with Caracas, Venezeula. 

Our History

The Knoxville church was planted in 1993 by a faithful group of disciples from the Nashville Church. But Knoxville’s history stretches well before that. There were several faithful disciples who lived and worked in East Tennessee - the Tri-Cities area who had been building God’s Kingdom for quite a while before the “official team” came to plant the Knoxville Church. The brothers and sisters from Nashville, led by Bill and Amanda Burke, were able to have great success in establishing the church because of the combined efforts of those who moved from Nashville along with those who already lived in the area. A strong campus ministry was built and many families were converted through the years as several different brothers led the church.  The Knoxville church is so grateful to those who made so many sacrifices over the early years of the church to help lay a foundation on which we can build.
