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.

Our web site will help you learn more about us and our ministries, but worshiping with us will help you know us better. We'd love for you to join us for Bible study (our Sunday School has classes for all ages) and worship on Sunday mornings. When you worship with us, we believe that you will find:

  • God-focused, Bible-based worship for the whole family that's rooted in the Bible and Christian history, drawing on the best of ancient, old, and new practices and elements.
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God.
  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you.
  • Ministries and opportunities that are both intergenerational and age-specific.

If you're looking for a church home, we'd love to have you worship with us at Smithwood! If you're not yet a follower of Jesus and wondering what being a Christian is about, please click on The Gospel Story tab and watch the video there. If you have questions, please feel free to call us at 865-689-5448 or email us at

We hope to see you soon!
