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!

Sunday Schedule (Effective May 5, 2013)
9:30 A.M.   Internet Café
  Enjoy complimentary coffee/tea/soda and breakfast snacks, Wifi hot spot, fresh air, and the sounds of nature on the outside deck adjacent to the sanctuary (weather permitting) before the worship service begins.
10:30 A.M.   Worship Service
  Contemporary praise and worship (singing), preaching, prayer with laying on of hands every Sunday. The Lord's Supper (communion) is served on the first Sunday each month.

Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville is celebrating its fifth year in existence and our fourth year at Ijams Nature Center! We began to hold church services at our current location on April 8, 2012, and we have been meeting here weekly since May 27, 2012.

We are specifically inviting people to our meeting whose lives have been touched by this disease so they can ask the doctor their questions in a casual setting with other patients and their family members. This is a rare opportunity that you shouldn't miss. Share this announcement with anyone you know who would benefit by being part this discussion.
