King's Cross Presbyterian Church was started in 2020 by a group of reformed Christians looking to serve Sapulpa and Tulsa. Our faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace in the midst of a world that is often unpredictable and disheartening.
We exist to be a family of Christ focused on growing our faith and expanding the Kingdom of God. We are dedicated to worshiping God, learning His Word, serving others, and seeking the lost.
What We Believe
The following is a brief summary of what we believe
The Bible - We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God's truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
God - We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. In himself, he is perfectly holy and powerful, altogether just and wise, and utterly good and loving.
Humanity - We believe that all people are created in the image of God with dignity as they were made to reflect God's character in all of life. Yet, we believe that all people are born as sinners, totally depraved and totally unable to save themselves from God's displeasure, except by his mercy.
Salvation - We believe that salvation is by God alone as he sovereignly chooses those he will save. We believe his choice is based on his grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith. This view of soteriology is often called "Calvinism". We believe that salvation is through Christ alone by grace alone through faith alone.
Jesus Christ - We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through his perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in him, alone, for salvation. We believe that Jesus, our Redeemer, was raised again for our justification, and ascended into the heavens, where he sits at the right hand of the Father Almighty, continually making intercession for his people, and governing the whole world as head over all things for his church. We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind, to receive his people to himself, and to renew all things.
Holy Spirit - We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God's people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow him. We believe that the Holy Spirit refreshes, remakes, restores, reforms, and revives. We are never alone because he is in us and with us.
Church and Kingdom - We believe that as the living God renews all things, he has been gathering a people, called the church, from every nation, race, class, and culture. He instructs us as his people to become actively invested in the world's people and problems in eternally productive ways by bringing his Kingdom truth and values to bear on all of life. Jesus has power and authority to right what is wrong with the world and he chooses the church as his primary instrument for renewing all things.
These teachings can be summarized in what is commonly known as the Five Solas of the Reformation.
