Our Story

Knoxville International Church (KIC) is a multiethnic church home for people from all nations and ethnicities. We believe that The Bible is the word of God, and that it provides objective truth that brings believers of all ethnicities together while also allowing for difference in culture and preference. We seek to serve God and fulfill The Great Commission that all believers are called to participate in, and we believe that we can better fulfill

The Great Commission together.

KIC is privileged to be a part of Converge MidAmerica and join in their church planting efforts directly here in Knoxville, TN and among the nations.

KIC is also honored to be part of the Southern Baptist Convention and participate in the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program as this will allow us to participate in missions, Disaster Relief and Felt-Needs Care from the beginning of our church.

KIC's Strategy

We believe that all Christians are called to have an Intentional Personal Ministry to their family, social circle and cross-culturally and that we are responsible to work together to reach those minorities that are overlooked and under engaged with the gospel.


There are several language-specific international churches in Knoxville, TN and we praise God for the way He is working and moving among His people! We affirm the remarkable strengths of these churches and their ministries and strive to partner with them in order to learn from them and further grow the kingdom of God here in Knoxville and beyond.


Our services will be held primarily in English while also seeking to affirm and learn from the diverse cultural heritage of all who participate in our church.


We will strive to hold the Bible as the objective standard and not to judge each other by our different preferences or cultural characteristics, but instead strive to learn from each other and see how we can better understand and practice the teachings of God through the example of diverse believers.


We strive to have language specific options for those who are still growing in their ability to participate in the English language, and we anticipate that we will have language specific worship services and Bible studies for those who desire them, while also encouraging cross-cultural fellowship and ministry as much as we are able.


Those who participate in language specific options will not be treated as outsiders of the church and their leadership will be integrated into the same leadership and decision making structure as other leaders in the church.
