Saint Mark Orthodox
Christian Church

Welcome

Welcome to our parish website. I  hope that through this website you will become better acquainted with our parish. It is our desire that together we become, make, and grow disciples of Jesus Christ by announcing His love for all mankind by inviting all into communion with Him through a life of worship, fellowship and service, in the context of  community.

Whether you are curious about our community, would like to learn more about Orthodox Christianity, or are searching to find a spiritual home, you are always welcome to join us at St Mark Orthodox Christian Church.

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”

“Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)

Orthodox Christian Worship

The services of the Church are foundational to our life as Christians. Being the Body of Christ, we work to find every opportunity to connect our daily lives to Him.

You are invited to attend any of our divine services. Orthodox Christianity is more than a liturgical religion -but a liturgical way of life. Our parish community is a manifestation of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, founded on the day of Pentecost, which to this day, is a living and dynamic worshiping community which understands doctrine in the context of divine worship. Simply put, Orthodoxy, means right belief and right worship -for they are inseparable.

Come, open your heart, and you will hear the voice of the Holy Spirit Who has guided and been present in nearly 2,000 years of these services, teaching us how to worship God and enter more deeply into the relationship of salvation He has wrought for us. Welcome!

Join Us

At the end of every Divine Liturgy, we joyfully sing:

“We have seen the True Light! We have received the Heavenly Spirit! We have found the True Faith! Worshiping the Undivided Trinity, Who has saved us.”

This is our belief, that the Orthodox Church is and was established nearly 2,000 years ago to be the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

“Come and see.” Experience the love of God the Father, the revelation of Truth in Jesus Christ, and the gentle repentant inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
