unifying christians to accomplish what no one church can do alone

We have identified Cocke County's neediest areas:

* Substance Abuse

* Breakdown of the Family

* Poverty

* Depression

Empower Cocke County was established in 2013.  It started as the grassroots effort of a local church that was too large for one group.  We welcomed in other churches and now have representation from many different denominations.  We target these issues through Evangelism, the Hopeline and Vocational Rehabilitation.  Recently Options Pregnancy Center and Hope Mountain Manner have joined us in collaborating on how best to serve our community.   

Vision Statement:

A collaborative effort of local churches to reach Cocke County with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Mission Statement:

Empower Cocke County desires to see positive life change by helping individuals cease destructive behavior through following the teaching of Jesus Christ. We intend to do this by calling local bodies of Christ together, working side by side in one accord, to accomplish what no one church can do alone.

Beliefs:

1. We believe in one God: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit;

2. We believe Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through Him.

3. Marriage is between One man and One woman.

4. All life is God-given and all life begins at conception.
