Mission of the Orthodox Church:
proclaim and live the Orthodox Christian Faith in its fullness as
faithful members of the Body of Christ in the One, Holy, Catholic, and
the Orthodox Christian Church:
We are Catholic, but not Roman.
We are Apostolic, but not Protestant.
We are Orthodox, but not Jewish.
The Orthodox Church isn’t
"non-denominational" – it is pre-denominational, existing 1,500 years
before any denominations.
Orthodox Church has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for
the Faith of the Apostles since the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on
the day of Pentecost 2000 years ago. We are the Church in the
Bible and the Church that established the New Testament as Scripture.
