Faith Mission & Values

Our Faith

We believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. And one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

Our Values

Liturgy
We believe in Orthodox Christianity, as taught by the Roman Catholic Church. The Eucharistic celebration is the source and summit of our faith which we seek to live and serve with the whole of our lives in vibrant and creative ways.

Discipleship
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God. Our preaching and messages strive to break open the relevance of the Bible for our daily lives.
Changing and growing into the likeness of Christ is not just greater knowledge of our faith, but doing what God’s Word says.

Living as the Body of Christ
We believe that our Baptism makes us one family in which we learn to love one another as Christ loved us.

Service
We believe that the Holy Spirit has prepared works for us to do that will advance the kingdom of Christ. We recognize God’s call on our church to serve both within our parish and also beyond. 

Evangelization
The ultimate goal of evangelization is to bring people into intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, and welcome them into the Church.

 

Our Mission

Make disciples.

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
Matthew 28.19-20
