Beliefs

The word Orthodox is a combination of two words, Orthos which means 'true' and Doxos which means 'glory'.

Orthodoxy is nothing but True Glory, glorification of the Triune God in the True Way.

We believe that God is One in substance and Triune in persons.

We worship One God in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity. For the Orthodox Christians, the doctrine of the Holy Trinity underlies all theology and spirituality.

All creation is the work of the Holy Trinity. The world is not self-created, neither has it existed from eternity, but it is created out of nothing by the Love of God.

The Church was instituted through the power of the Holy Spirit, and the Church is held to be One, Holy, Apostolic and Catholic

Compassion

Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.

We are committed to the spiritual, economic, social and physical development of people and enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. As a part of it we have started many organizations in different countries

Matthew 15:32 where Jesus says, 'I have compassion for these people - I do not want to send them away hungry'


Feel free to contact our Vicar if you are having a difficult time or you are worried about someone. There is always hope in Jesus Christ.
