Kornelis van Hoek belonged to a Rotterdam branch of the van Hoek family. He died at Rotterdam in 1722. He was a member of the Rotterdam Waterlander congregation, but seems to have left the congregation in 1695, when the deacons had thwarted the Collegiants, who had been holding their meetings in the Waterlander meetinghouse. The fact that Kornelis van Hoek was an ardent Collegiant is proved by a number of books and pamphlets published by him. He especially attacked the conservative Zonist views of Lambert Bidloo and Herman Schijn. Of his publications, which were eagerly read by Mennonite liberals, we should mention: Lykreden op J. Oudaen (Rotterdam, 1695); Christelyke bedenking over en tegen . . . de aanmerkingen op het formulier van Benoodiging van H. Schyn (Amsterdam, 1701); De Christelyke verdraagzaamheit verdedigt tegen H. Schyn en Bidloo (Rotterdam, 1701); Ongebonden licentie, de grondslag der Rhynburgsche verdraagzaamheit (Amsterdam, 1702); Nadere verdediging der Christelyke verdraagzaamheit tegen de laatste Wederspraak van H. Schyn en L. Bidloo (Rotterdam, 1703), and a devotional book, De vernederde en verhoogde Christus  (Rotterdam, 1716).

A cousin of this Kornelis van Hoek was Jan van Hoek, a member of the Mennonite congregation of Rotterdam and an antagonist of liberal principles. His son Sander van Hoek (born 1757) left the congregation and became a Reformed minister.
