    Our vision is to impact the unchurched of the world for God, starting in our surrounding counties. Our purpose is to honor the Lord Jesus Christ by enjoying him and partnering with him to build his church. The mission of Faith Promise Church is to lead people into experiencing and growing their relationship with God. Our strategy is to create relevant environments where people can meet with God, experience community with believers and reach their potential.

    People are our priority. We believe that the lost matter more! Jesus said, “Leave the 99 and go and find the one lost sheep.” His commission is clear to all Christ followers: “Make disciples of all nations …” Our focus is not buildings or programs, but people. Jesus died for people, and they are our priority. We will continue to add sites, seats and services to make it hard to go to hell from East Tennessee.
