Church Services


"Q&A" Sermon Series

Do you have questions and wonder what the Bible has to say about them? Here is your chance to ask and find out the answers! The second annual Q&A Sermon Series will be getting underway soon at Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville. Pastor David Spakes is calling for questions at this time, and he will attempt to answer as many as he can for the duration of the series. Each answer will be presented in the form of a Sunday morning sermon that will elaborate the Scriptures. You don't want to miss this important series!

About Our Church

Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville meets weekly for church service on Sunday mornings (see schedule below) at Ijams Nature Center in South Knoxville. Click here for directions. We are an independent, nondenominational, Evangelical Christian Church that is friendly to the sciences. We welcome sincere skeptics to consider starting a relationship with God in fellowship with a group of Christians who are not judgmental against beliefs such as a 13.7-billion-year-old universe and evolution. We consider the Bible to be the inspired Word of God and inerrant in the original text, and where science and the Bible do not appear to agree, the flaw lies in human inability to fit the puzzle pieces together (the church takes no official position on such matters). We study from both classic (KJV, etc.) and modern (NIV, NRSV, etc.) English translations of the Bible. Please come and be warmly welcomed!
