What We Believe In
Our team consists of Orthodox Christians. The Orthodox Church is quite simply the Church of Christ, which defined the modern Christian faith by Church councils, based on the Holy Scriptures and the consensus of the Church Fathers – our greatest saints and theologians.
- We believe in the Holy Trinity, that is, in one God in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit proceeding from God the Father.
- We believe that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God Who came to our earth to save us, thereby fulfilling absolutely all the Old Testament prophecies. We believe that Christ is fully God and fully Human, and these two natures don’t merge into one but remain distinguishable.
Christ fulfills his mission as God and Man, saving us from sin and death. He was born as a Man, lived on earth, taught the nations, and suffered death on the cross for our salvation.
By His sufferings on the cross and His subsequent resurrection, Jesus Christ defeated death, giving us the opportunity to be saved and inherit eternal life.
The Body of Christ is The Church
The Orthodox Church has great importance in the Orthodox faith and is considered the Body of Christ. We believe that without the Church it’s impossible to achieve a full understanding of God.
Our Church has Holy traditions and sacraments, such as baptism, communion, anointing, confession, and many others. Through these sacraments, we live a Christian life and connect with God.
Veneration of Saints
We venerate the saints – holy people who have lived exemplary lives of faith and have attained a special place in heaven. The saints are venerated as models of faith. They are alive in Christ and continue to intercede for people before God. We also believe that after death comes resurrection and judgment.
The Church places great importance on tradition and liturgy. The liturgical worship of the Church includes a rich amount of prayers, hymns, and chants.
Orthodox Christianity teaches that the ultimate goal of the Christian life is to achieve theosis, which is the process of becoming united with God or achieving His likeness. This involves a lifelong journey of spiritual growth and transformation through prayer, faith, fasting, and acts of charity.
The Orthodox Church has a rich tradition of iconography, which involves the creation and veneration of Holy images. Icons help us focus on prayer, and we also believe that venerating an icon is the same as venerating the one who is depicted on it.
Orthodoxy has a strong emphasis on asceticism or self-discipline. We use it as a means of spiritual growth and transformation. This includes fasting, prayer, almsgiving, and other forms of self-discipline.
The Orthodox Christian Bible contains 76 books, which include 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament.
The Orthodox Church considers all of these books to be divinely inspired and authoritative for the life and teaching of the Church.
All these concepts were defined by early Christian theologians at Church councils, and the results of our faith can be seen in the biographies of our saints who have achieved true holiness and nearness to God.
