We are new to Ames, but in no way new! Orthodox Christianity has been around since the Church was brought into being on Pentecost. Our Church was founded on the principles of conciliarity, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit – as found in Acts 15.
So what is the message of Orthodox Christianity?
That God loves you, and more than anything, desires your fellowship and communion.
That we have discovered the path to union with God – achievable not just by saints, but by every Christian desiring to know God.
That we will share that path with anyone and everyone who desires to know about it.
The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish.
It is catholic, but not Roman.
It isn’t non-denominational – it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost 2000 years ago.
You don’t have to be Greek, or Russian, or Ukranian, or Middle-Eastern – you just have to be interested!
Contact us, or feel free to join us in prayer anytime we gather.
