/ About Us / Our Mission

Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory to Him forever!

Christ is in our midst. He is and ever shall be.

He has promised, "For where two or three have gathered together in my name, I am there in their midst." (Mt.18:20)

Jesus Christ is our focus, but we worship God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit – the Holy Trinity – in our Divine Liturgy, sacraments, teachings, traditions, prayers and throughout our daily lives.

We strive to love God and to love people.

Our vision? Orthodox Christianity to change the World.

We are a Great Commission Orthodox Church manifesting Jesus Christ to the world by:

               1. fishing for men (evangelism)

               2. feeding the faithful (teaching/sacraments)

               3. following Jesus Christ as His disciples (discipleship)

We believe in the grace and power of the Holy Spirit to change lives, heal bodies, deliver from evil, and empower us to live as witnesses in the world.

Our church is not Greek, Russian, Jewish, Ukrainian, Serbian, Polish, Palestinian, German, Syrian, Egyptian, Puerto Rican or Haitian, but we have people from those backgrounds.

Jesus Christ died for all. We are an Orthodox Christian Church serving all people in the language they best can understand the message and teachings, in this case English.

Come and join us for the Divine Liturgy, Bible Study or Evening Prayer. Bring your family and experience something new…authentic, apostolic, Orthodox Christianity consistent with 2000 years of life-changing Christian faith and tradition. We promise you will not be disappointed!

The ORTHODOX CHURCH IN AMERICA is…

an autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church that exists to bring the fullness of the Christian faith and tradition to all people who seek to know Jesus Christ and His Church. Its doctrine, disciple, and worship are those of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church as taught by the Holy Scriptures, Holy Tradition, the Ecumenical and Provincial Councils, and the Holy Fathers. Originally founded as a mission and later a diocese in the Orthodox Church of Russia, uniting in its fold Orthodox Christians of various national backgrounds and traditions, it developed into an self-governing Metropolitanate, the Russian Greek Catholic Church of America. Confirmation as an Autocephalous Church was accomplished by the action of the Patriarch and Holy Synod of Russia on April 10, 1970, and renamed, The Orthodox Church of America for all nationalities and people.
