New Year's Eve Watch-Night Service

We welcome everyone to join us at 10:00 P.M. on Sunday, December 31 for our special New Year's Eve church service to bring in the start of 2018 with prayer, praise & worship, and communion. There will be an opportunity for anyone who wants to praise the Lord with their talent to do so also.

Please note that we will not be having a church service on this Sunday morning, only the evening.

About Our Church

Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville (STFK) is a local and independent Evangelical Christian Church. We are not related to Scientology, Christian Science, or the organization called Spirit and Truth Fellowship International.

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 criticized 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 by making a non-controversial environment based on 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.

You might find it helpful to watch our video describing the church vision, located here.
