About Our Church
Kirk of the Hills (a.k.a. ‘The Kirk’) is a unique expression of what God is doing in Tulsa, OK. We are a community where Jesus seekers and followers of all age, race, and social status become family in Christ. 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 IN MISSION
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 IN STRUCTURE
‘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 IN BELIEF
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. Click here to read more about our essential beliefs.
