The local Church is the living Body of Christ (1Cor 12:27) that serves to live, uphold, and preach the Faith as delivered by Christ,
taught by the Apostles, and preserved in the Holy Scriptures and Tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church. We accomplish this mission by
• participation in liturgical worship,
• partaking of the spiritual life and sacraments of the Church,
• sharing in Christian fellowship as a eucharistic community,
• providing for education of the Faith,
• engaging in philanthropy,
• being wise stewards of our time, talents, and properties and,
• being Christ’s ambassadors (2Cor 5:20) to the world in manifesting His love, presence, and preaching.
