Frequently Asked Questions:

How should I dress?
Comfortably! Come casual or dress up. People wear anything from shorts and jeans to dresses and sport coats.
Do I need to bring anything?
No. If you want to bring a Bible, feel free to do so. We also project songs and scripture verses on an overhead screen.
What is the service like?
While services vary from week to week, each includes worship with congregational singing, announcements, special music, a message, offering, and prayer. Other elements often include drama, video clips and visual art.
What is the music like?
We combine a balance of old and new in a contemporary praise setting. Led by a team of musicians, our services are a time of corporate, intimate communion with God. The worship team includes vocalists, guitars, keyboards, and drums. The team draws from various styles of music to unite us in worship, celebration, and praise.
What does the church believe?
We believe that the Bible is uniquely God-inspired and without error. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. He then rose again, conquering death. This allows eternal salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone.
How do I get there?

From Knoxville: Take 129/Alcoa Hwy S toward the airport. Take Pellissippi Parkway South to the end. Turn right onto E. Broadway Ave (TN-33) and travel for 0.8 miles. Turn left onto Defoe Circle, and look for 114 Defoe Circle immediately on the left.

Where do my kids go?

Lionheart’s approach to “children’s church” is that children should be a part of the church. So while we always make sure there is a place for nursing mothers or children needing special attention, etc., we encourage parents to keep children of any age in the room during both worship and the teaching each Sunday. We find that, if given the chance, even very young children can learn to participate in worship and learn about God from the sermon.
