Thank you for visiting our website!
We're glad you found us!
Smithwood Baptist Church has been a congregation of believers in Jesus Christ for more than 170 years (established in August 1845), and has always met at our present location at 4914 Jacksboro Pike in the Fountain City area of Knoxville. Though we're not a large church, we're striving to touch our community and our world with God's love by being on mission with Christ as we love God, love people, and make disciples. Through informal contacts, special events, ongoing ministries like JustLead for children, and significant prayer and financial support for local, state, national, and international missions, we strive to share the good news of Jesus Christ through deeds of love and words of witness.

If you're looking for a church home, we'd love to have you worship with us at Smithwood!
