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 sovereignty of God, and salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
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 EPC is committed to unity in essential beliefs, liberty in non-essentials, and loving one another above all.
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, 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.
