Welcome to the Knox Orthodox Presbyterian Church website!


My name is Tom Martin, and I'm the pastor of Knox OPC. On behalf of our congregation, I invite you to explore this website. Here you'll get to meet us and find out who we are, what we believe, and what we do as a local congregation of Jesus' church in the metropolitan DC area.

Let me summarize our mission in this way. In Ephesians 3:8, the apostle Paul expresses his amazement and delight because God has given a sinful person like him the task of declaring what he refers to as the "unsearchable riches of Christ." At Knox, we share that amazement and delight at Jesus' unsearchable riches. Here's why --

I hope that you will take time to explore this website to find more information that will flesh out this brief introduction. You will see that we are committed to the inspiration and infallibility of the Bible as the very word of God. As a member of the Reformed family of churches, we accept the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger & Shorter Catechisms as a reliable (though not inspired) summary of what the Bible teaches.

In the end, however, the best way to get to know us will be for you to visit with us, and I invite you to do just that. This is a warm and welcoming congregation that prays for visitors, so we will not only make you welcome, we will see your visit to us as a part of God's answer to our prayers!

Yours in the service of the Lord Jesus,

Tom Martin, pastor.
