All Souls Church is a Christ-centered worshipping community seeking the peace of Knoxville. We exist to worship and glorify God, welcome both disciples of Jesus and spiritual seekers, and form God’s people to share the good news of Jesus in our city.
We envision a city where people accept the Lordship of Jesus and are committed to following the way of Jesus; growing in joy and the fruit of the Spirit; and transforming Knoxville through reconciliation, justice, and peace.
The Hebrew word for welfare is shalom, which holds within it the ideas of peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare, and tranquility. Isaiah described the place with shalom as having joy, health, economic opportunity, flourishing children, spiritual vitality, reconciliation, unity, and safety (Isaiah 65:17-25). Jesus talked of shalom many times, calling it the kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven. We long to see shalom come to Knoxville, the place where we live, work, and play.
