About John Knox

John Knox Presbyterian Church is empowered by the Holy Spirit to be a living vessel of God's unconditional love. Unafraid to respond to God's call, we dream holy dreams, risk growth and boldly live as a community of disciples. Emulating Jesus Christ, we enrich lives through our worship, education and mission.
Neighbors Along the Line (NATL) was established in 1976, after the minister of John Knox Presbyterian Church, Dr. Richard Evans, received a phone call from a social worker at the Tulsa Housing Authority. An abused wife and mother had arrived in Tulsa with her children, owning nothing but the clothes on their backs. The Housing Authority gave them shelter, and the John Knox congregation provided food, furnishings, and other necessities.

We Believe

In the triune God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Bible is God's Word to us. We are saved by grace through faith. The sacrament of Baptism symbolizes inclusion in the family of God. The sacrament of the Lord's Supper is a symbolic meal open to all who confess faith in Christ. We are Reformed and always reforming. The confessions of our church are authentic and reliable expositions of what Scripture leads us to believe and do. In cultivating opportunities to experience God in community.

Who Are Presbyterians?

The Presbyterian Church was established in the 16th Century during the development of Protestantism. Originally influenced by John Calvin's involvement in the French Protestant movement, this focus on a balance of power through "elder" (Greek: presbuteros) leadership in the church, made its way to the British Isles, where it flourished and was launched into the rest of the world.
