About The Kirk Church
We are The Kirk, an Evangelical Presbyterian Church with two locations in the Tulsa metro area. One campus is located in South Tulsa near 61st and Yale, and the other right off Highway 75 near 111th street in Jenks, OK.
WHAT IS THE KIRK?
THE KIRK MEANS “CHURCH.”
Kirk is the Scottish word for ‘church’ and we use it because the Presbyterian tradition has historical roots in Scotland. We are governed by a group of elders (male and female) who are elected from the congregation to serve as spiritual leaders. “Presbyterian” comes from the Greek word for “elder.” We stand in the theological tradition of the Reformation, which emphasizes the authority of Scripture, the sovereign rule of God over all things, that salvation comes by grace alone through faith alone, and that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the only sacraments given to us by Jesus.
THE KIRK EXISTS FOR WORSHIP
At The Kirk, worship is our highest value because God is worthy of our worship. We gather weekly at both Kirk of the Hills and Kirk Crossing to pray, to sing, to hear from God’s Word and be sent out on mission. We worship with others because Christ calls us to and because we simply enjoy being together.
THE KIRK IS EVANGELICAL
The Kirk is a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC), a reformed denomination dedicated to 1.) the Lordship of Jesus Christ, 2.) the authority of the Bible, and 3.) the world-wide mission of the Gospel. Founded in 1981, the member churches of the EPC are committed to these central tenets of the Reformed tradition. On personal issues, such as ordaining women as officers or practicing charismatic gifts, each church has liberty to practice as they see fit.
