Welcome to the kirk
We are a community where Jesus seekers and followers of all age, race, and social status become family in Christ.
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.
What We Believe
All Scripture is absolutely true and therefore requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament, contains no error and is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the Incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation we affirm these Essentials of Our Faith:
The Mission of the Church
The Return of Christ
“Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” (Rev. 22:20)
For a more detailed explanation of what we believe in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, see the Westminster Confession of Faith.
