Welcome to the kirk
We are a community where Jesus seekers and followers of all age, race, and social status become family in Christ.
Kirk of the Hills (a.k.a. ‘The Kirk’) is a unique expression of what God is doing in Tulsa, OK. Our name comes from our heritage, as ‘Kirk’ is the Scottish word for church, we use it because the Presbyterian tradition has historical roots in Scotland.
The Kirk is Evangelical.
The Kirk is a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, a reformed denomination dedicated to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the authority of the Bible, and the world-wide mission of the Gospel. The word evangelical comes from the Greek word for ‘gospel,’ which means good news. So, to be evangelical is simply to be committed to sharing the good news about Jesus Christ. The EPC is committed to unity in essential beliefs, liberty in non-essentials, and loving one another above all.
The Kirk is Presbyterian.
‘Presbyterian’ comes from the Greek word for “elder.” We are governed by a group of elders (male and female) who are elected from the congregation to serve as spiritual leaders.
The Kirk is Reformed.
We stand in the theological tradition of the Reformation, which emphasizes the authority of Scripture, the sovereignty of God, and salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. You can read our beliefs below.
