  • The Knox County Association of Baptists is a network of more than 150 Baptist churches joining together in a spirit of unity right here in Knox County and sent to live out the mission of God in the world. Associational ministries include Baptist Centers at Western Heights and Montgomery Village, Camp Ba Yo Ca, Nations and Neighbors, and Project Knox.

  • Knox Area Rescue Ministries provides daily for those most vulnerable and desperate among us, first supplying rescue services of food and shelter, then healthy, supportive relationships, and ultimately restoration, including job-training opportunities.


    "Corners Of Your Field" is a partnership opportunity between local churches and Knox Area Rescue Ministries. The "Corners Of Your Field" partnership encourages the Salem family to be intentional about selecting our gently used household items for donation to KARM Stores. The stores then return a portion of the value of these items in the form of gift cards to our church to help those directly in our care through our benevolence ministry.

  • The Tennessee Baptist Mission Board oversees the daily operation of the missions and ministry activities of the network of churches that make up the Tennessee Baptist Convention. More than 3,000 churches are a part of this network, serving together through Cooperative Program giving, the Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions and the ministries of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board to reach Tennessee, reach the nations and change the world for the glory of Jesus Christ.

  • For more than 170 years, Southern Baptists have sought to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people everywhere. The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) was formed with a Gospel vision and has grown to be a network of more than fifty thousand cooperating churches and church-type missions banded together to make an impact for God’s Kingdom. 

  • The North American Mission Board exists to work with churches, associations and state conventions in mobilizing Southern Baptists as a missional force to impact North America with the gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism and church planting. This is accomplished through Send North America, a national strategy for mobilizing churches to plant churches and mobilizing church planters and other missionaries to assist with those efforts.

  • The International Mission Board (IMB) partners with churches to empower limitless missionary teams who are evangelizing, discipling, planting, and multiplying healthy churches, and training leaders among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God.
