Mission, Vision, and Values
The mission of our parish is to love God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind and our neighbors as ourselves.
As an Orthodox Christian community of believers, our vision is to experience a foretaste of God's Kingdom in this world and eternal life in His Kingdom to come.
Serving Christ. Serving People.
Aims and Purposes
The aims and purposes of our parish are to keep, practice and proclaim the Orthodox Christian Faith pure and undefiled.
Our beliefs are best summarized by the Nicene Creed of 325 AD. This is the Creed of the one, ancient, and undivided Christian Church and the only one ever used by Orthodox Christians.
Our values have been central to our Church ever since it was established.
- The Gospel of Jesus Christ
- The teachings-verbal and written- of Jesus Christ, His Disciples and the Church
- The One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ
- Worship, literally: "the work of the people."
- The holy mysteries/sacraments
- Witness. Proclaiming Christ in words and actions.
- Synergy. Doing the will and the work of God as individuals and working together as the Body of Christ.
