The Orthodox Christian Faith

While there are now many good books, articles, and blogs that a person might read about Orthodoxy, and some valuable places online to find answers to your questions about the faith, the best way is simply to “come and see.” The Orthodox faith encompasses all of life, drawing every aspect of creation into Christ’s healing, redemption, and blessing.

Come experience the holiness of God and the beauty of Orthodox worship for yourself.

The Orthodox Christian faith is nothing more and nothing less that the Gospel, the “Good News” of the Kingdom of God, as taught by our Lord Jesus Christ, His Holy Apostles, and faithfully lived and handed down by His Church down through the ages. This great and Holy Tradition is constantly renewed by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, “everywhere present and filling all things.”

All Orthodox theology is, in a way, a response to the question of the Lord, “Who do men say that I am?” and “Who do you say that I am?” (Mark 8.27-38 and Matthew 16.13-27). The early Christians searched the Scriptures, and realized that Jesus Christ was truly God incarnate – God with us – fully God and fully Man. Through the mystery of Christ the fullness of the Holy Trinity is revealed as well: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This teaching of the Orthodox Christian faith is authoritatively expressed in the Scriptures, the Symbol of Faith, the Ecumenical Councils of the Church, as well as in the Divine Liturgy, hymns, writings of the Fathers, icons, and lives of the saints.

God is the Lord, and has revealed Himself to us!
