Our understanding of our mission and vision is summarized in our name:

On the one hand it refers to the Live Oak trees that grow in abundance along the Grand Strand. More importantly it reminds us of who we are to be. In Luke 4 Jesus reads fromthe opening verses of Isaiah 61 declaring both His commission and the mission of His church: to proclaim good news, liberty to captives, recovering of sight to the blind, the year of the Lord’s favor. Although the Gospel writers do not say, Jesus may also have continued to read 61:3 where it declares the ultimate goal: “that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” Our vision thus is to build up a worshiping body of believers who are a planting of the Lord, developing as faithful followers into oaks of righteousness.

Our desire is to build up such a body of worshiping believers within the framework of the Presbyterian and Reformed tradition and this is reflected in our use of the word “Kirk” in the name of our Church. “Kirk” is a Scottish word which simply means “church” and it is from Scotland that the Presbyterian church has its roots under the Reformer John Knox.
