In May, 1952, Dr. R.W. "Bob" Bevington led a group of earnest Christians in establishing the Knoxville Baptist Tabernacle. The Tabernacle was founded on the principles of strong Bible preaching, house-to-house soul winning, separation from the world, and support for world-wide missions.

Through the years, some of America's greatest preachers and soul-winners have spoken from our pulpit-- men such as John R. Rice, Lee Roberson, Billy McCarroll, Fred Garland, Dolphus Price, Lester Roloff, among many others.

The Tabernacle was a participating host for many years of the International Fellowship of Fundamental Baptists.

Prior to Bro. Bob's Homegoing in 2009, the Tabernacle called Bro. Tony Greene as its second pastor.  Bro. Greene continues the ministry in the same vein as Bro. Bob, with a strong emphasis on evangelism.

Besides a strong pulpit, the Tabernacle has the following active ministries: missionaries on several continents, Knoxville Baptist Christian School, Senior Saints, daily soul-winning, a bus ministry, and a daily radio broadcast on WKXV in Knoxville (5 PM).  Contact us at
