  • practice the Orthodox faith through observing the prayers, fasting and traditions of the Church (2 Thessalonians 2:15)
  • uphold the Word of God, the Bible, as our guide and greatest resource handed down by the Church
  • read the lives of the Holy Fathers and Saints to become better Orthodox Christians


  • treat everyone that walks into our church with love and respect (John 13:34) (Colossians 3:11)
  • see everyone with a non-judgmental attitude and accept them for who they are in Christ  (Matthew 7:1)

  • use words with a tone-of-voice that is non-offensive and compassionate when talking to others in the church (Proverbs 15:1) (Leviticus 19:18)
  • demonstrate to our children and youth true Christian character and values so that they grow up to become productive God-fearing Orthodox people in society (Proverbs 22:6)
