Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We are a cooperating member of The Southern Baptist Convention. We confess the 1689 second london baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the reformationas well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
