Saved by Grace through Faith


Welcome to the website of the Grace Seventh-day Adventist® Church in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Grace Seventh-day Adventist® Church was established on September 12, 1981, with forty-seven charter members. The first church building was built by the J. Fred Scott family and the Little Creek Academy faculty and students. The current building, with the invaluable help from Pastor George Sharpe, was completed and occupied on May 11, 1991. Today, the church has a membership of well over one hundred members and labors hard to share the gospel and the three angels' messages of Rev 14:6–12 to advance God's kingdom in West Knoxville. Check out more details about our history.

The mission of the Knoxville Grace Seventh-day Adventist® Church is to share the good news of Jesus through service, worship, Bible study, and fellowship.

It would be a great blessing to have you join us for our Sabbath School Bible Study each Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. ET and our Worship Service at 11:15 a.m ET.  We also would like for you to join us each Wednesday at 07:00 p.m. ET for mid-week Prayer Meeting.

To learn more about what we believe, you may want to visit our "About Us" page.

Upcoming Events

Join us for a time of singing, prayer, and Bible study for spiritual enrichment in the middle of the week.

This is a time for going deep into the Bible. There are a variety of classes for adults and children to study God's Word. Come join us as we study Scripture together with the guidance of the quarterly Bible study guides.

June 26, 2021 at 11:15 AM

Come worship with us, as we gather for uplifting music, inspiring prayer, and powerful biblical preaching.

June 26, 2021 at 11:15 AM

Please join us in proclaiming our Lord's death and resurrection until he comes again by celebrating the Lord's Supper with us!

The Church will provide an opportunity for the corporate practice of the ordinance of humility (i.e., foot-washing) as it has traditionally done. Participants who feel uncomfortable with the practice of foot-washing at this time are encouraged to practice it in their homes with their families during the week prior to the service.

The emblems of unleavened bread and unfermented wine will not be distributed by the pastor, elders, and deacons in the traditional manner at this time. Instead, individually pre-packaged and sealed communion emblems will be available for pick-up in the foyer as worship participants enter the sanctuary the morning of the service.

June 26, 2021 at 12:30 PM

Join us for a "potluck" style fellowship meal after our Saturday morning worship service downstairs in the fellowship hall.
