Who We Are

What if going to church was easy? What if you actually liked it? Isn’t church supposed to be a good thing? That’s The Point.

God loves you. He’s not concerned with where you’ve been, what you wear to church, if you have questions; He’s not expecting you to be perfect or totally understand Him. The Point is a church where you can experience a real God for your real life. God loves you where you are and he desires to take you places you never thought you could go.

Come as you are. No need to cover up tattoos, dress up, or pretend you have the perfect life, or the perfect family. Bring your questions and your concerns.

Check out The Point before you ever walk in the door on thepointknox.com and thepointknox in your app store. You can also come out to one of our community events.

Join us for a worship this Sunday and remember to come as you are and text in your questions.

Our Services

What are services like?
Come as you are. No need to cover up tattoos, dress up, or pretend you have the perfect life, or the perfect family. Bring your questions and your concerns, you can even text them in. High tech service. Use things like texting, mobile apps, videos, and other media to share a real God for your real life.

What is the community like?
Warm and accepting. They will make you feel welcome from the moment you walk through the door. It doesn't matter if your wearing a 3 piece suit, or a sleeveless shirt with tattoos from head toe. Young or Old all are welcome at The Point.

What if I'm not a Christian?
It's ok to have questions. That is the premise we built this church. The Point is a place where you can come in with doubts, hesitations, and questions. We even encourage you to text them in. We regularly see atheists and agnostics checking out The Point and exploring faith. The average person visiting The Point is 10-20 years disconnected from church, if they ever spent time in a church before. That is why we started The Point, to help you wrestle with your questions. -Pastor Matt

Matt Peeples

Matt Peeples

Pastor Matt Peeples is the lead/founding pastor of The Point in Knoxville, TN. 2004 - Bachelors of Arts Mass Communications Journalism. Truman State University. 2009 - Masters of Divinity Concordia Seminary St. Louis, MO 2010 - Founding/Lead Pastor of The Point. We (Pastor Matt & the core team) started The Point as a church that is dedicated to reaching the disconnected in Knoxville. Through intentional community events, relationships with the disconnected, and savvy marketing we seek to meet people where they are. Our desire to meet people in the middle even stretches to our worship style and venue. We currently holds services in a movie theater and allows people to text in their questions worship. We believe while the gospel is unchanging the way it is presented needs to be relevant and understandable to our culture. That is our goal at The Point. Brief Bio of the church. In two short years The Point has made it's presense known in Knoxville. They are a regular presenses on the local hard rock station 94.3 The X. They frequently find themselves in the news for their community outreach efforts and use of technology. Are always creating new partnerships to connect with and bless their community. It is this passion for the disconnected that has been a catalyst allowing The Point to grow to an average weekly attendance of 200 with the average first time visitor who is 10 to 20 years disconnected from church. These efforts also lead The Point to be honored with the 2012 LCEF Fred E. Leitz mission award. Their mission is simple, to connect the disconnected. It is the heart of The Point, and the heart of Pastor Matt.
