Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville (STFK) will be holding its weekly church service at a different place and time on Sunday, August 7. We will be meeting at 9:00 A.M. at the Knoxville Convention Center in conjunction with the Fanboy Expo. You do not need to hold a ticket for Sunday admission to be able to attend our church service. Everyone is invited and welcome!

Park in the Poplar Street lot and enter the convention center at the ballroom entrance. You will be in a long hallway with very high ceiling, and on your right will be a set of escalators. Look for the church's A-frame sign, pictured left. If it is standing in front of a doorway as shown in the picture (click on the picture to enlarge), enter the meeting room through the door. If it is standing in front of the escalator, take the escalator up to the third floor and look for another sign.

You can read our statement of faith here. We are worshipers of God, followers of Jesus Christ, and supporters of science and science education. We see no conlict between believing in the Creator and understanding the creation. As a church, we take no official position on Genesis chapters 1-11 in the Bible, so controversial matters such as the age of the Earth are avoided. Newcomers can basically believe what they want about Genesis 1-11 without being judged for it.

People usually think of a skeptic as someone who finds it difficult to believe in God. We are not a church comprised of skeptics. We are a church who ministers to skeptics in an atmosphere of mutual respect where skeptics can explore the concept of believing in God.

In the South, many Christians have this concept that the study science is somehow a threat to their faith. We also exist to help those Christians learn that faith in God and the study of science are not mutually exclusive.
