Welcome to Our Church!

 

We are a community of Christians of many different ethnic backgrounds, who are worshiping God in English and who are following the ancient tradition of the Orthodox Church, the original church that was born in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. In the Holy Spirit and through our Lord Jesus Christ, we try to continue “steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayers” (Acts 2:42), being “led by the Spirit of God” to be “sons of God”. (Romans 8:14)
