Salvation in Jesus Christ is the purpose of our parish’s existence. All actions as a parish aim to have salvation as the underlying and primary goal. This manifests itself through the fulfillment of Christ’s commandment to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind” and to “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27). Loving God through worship and loving our neighbor through ministries are the bedrocks of our community.
Our mission is to proclaim the Gospel in accordance with the Orthodox Faith and sanctify the faithful through God’s grace in the worship and the sacraments of the Church. In so doing, we aim to fulfill Christ’s great commission that we “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:18).
We are a welcoming, inclusive, vibrant, and contemporary Greek Orthodox parish that respects and honors its ethnic and religious traditions, while continuously adapting to serve the changing needs of its parishioners and the surrounding community. We build on the founding principles of our parish to support a predominantly English speaking community throughout life’s journey and advance Christ centered values through our ministries.
