We live in a university town and a world that is both beautiful and broken. Jesus lived, died, rose from the dead and is coming back to make this city and world wonderfully new. It is Knox’s aim, in the way we live, work, study, play, sleep and even die, to give our city a foretaste of what Jesus has solemnly sworn to do. So, our biggest question is not how Jesus is relevant to our lives. Our question is how our lives are relevant to what Jesus has done, is doing and will do.
In a culture that believes you get what you earn and compete for, we believe all is ultimately of the undeserved grace of Jesus, from first to last. We live a life in a world, neither of which we created. In every way in which our lives fall short of the sheer glory of God (aka “sin”), we are forgiven and cleansed by grace alone. And Jesus promises a new, remade world, all by grace alone. This grace changes everything about the way we live now.


We are a Presbyterian church in the historic Reformed tradition. We subscribe to the great Ecumenical creeds of the universal church—the Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed and Athanasian Creed. But we also subscribe to the Westminster Standards. These documents, from the 17th century, define our beliefs as Presbyterians within the context of the historic Christian faith.


“In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” We require unity in as little as possible. We desire and pursue unity in as much as possible. And governing that pursuit of unifying truth together is a commitment to respectful love along the way.
