|| We are
like no other Church you have ever attended.
Are you searching for the truth, but are unable to find it?
Be sure to visit us next Sabbath!!!
The 7th Day Church of God
in Knoxville, Tennessee traces it’s history back
to the original church started in Jerusalem on Pentecost in 30AD by
Jesus. It has been splintered and persecuted, but as Jesus promised,
Satan has not prevailed against it. Locally, we are the oldest Sabbath
observant, holy day observant church in continuous operation.
In modern times the Knoxville branch of the church got
it’s start with Vernon Boring from Benton, TN as it’s minister up until
his death in June of 1988. The last few years of Vernon’s ministry, he
was assisted by Ida Mae DeTienne of Knoxville. Ida Mae and her husband
Delbert were baptized in the 1960's and served God till their death.
Ida Mae served as a host for the Knoxville Church, helping with renting
a meeting place and assisting Vernon and then Mark as needed.
After Vernon’s death in 1988, Mark Carr, who is a fourth
generation Sabbath keeper was ordained and has been our Pastor since then.
We look forward to meeting you!
