Closed Announcement (December 25)

Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year. The congregation of Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville (STFK) previously decided to not have church service on this day so that families could be together at home on Christmas morning. Some church members may be traveling out of town to be with their families. Also, weather forecasters are predicting that this Christmas will be the coldest on record! For all these reasons, the church building will be closed.

New Year's Eve Watch-Night Service (December 31)

STFK Movie Night (January 27)

STFK Movie Night logo

Our church makes an event out of watching movies together, partly for outreach and partly just for fun. We welcome everyone to take in a good flick with us. Movie dates and times are announced in advance.

Movie theaters were closed during the pandemic, so the church purchased a license to watch movies at the church building instead. Our license runs out in February. Before that date, we will meet on a selected Friday night each month at 8:00 P.M. Snacks and drinks provided.

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.

What People Are Saying About Us

(Justin - August 6, 2022)

"Hey man! Thanks for the message. I was looking at the Fanboy posts and I remembered meeting you with my wife in 2019 in Knoxville. We're in Birmingham aaaaand we've had some bad church experiences and remembered y'all and kept thinking we need some good folks like that around here!

I'm 38 and had never been to church for real until I was about 30 or so, since then I keep coming back to the same conclusion: God's cool, Jesus is cool, and people suck 😁 it breaks my heart though because they don't have to. It's just tough to get connected with folks when inevitably you see behind the mask and it's all gossip or run by folks with a business mindset that are only concerned about butts in seats.

I know it's not like that everywhere, it just takes a toll.

Really I just wanted to say thanks for being a good person and trying to do what Jesus was all about: love folks, build em up, and just don't be a turd."
