THE NEXT HOLY SYNOD

Currently, there are EOC churches and parishes in Uganda, D.R Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Sweden, Canada and the USA
Welcome to our web pages even in this time of Covid19 crisis.
Psalm 146 tells us, “Do not put your trust in princes, nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.” This exhortation makes much more sense when we are “locked away” from each other. Truly our hope is in God who made the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. Yet we treasure our relationships for we were designed and created for communion. What might God be trying to teach us through this crisis? What adjustments might God be drawing us to? I encourage us both to assess our lives and at the same time remember that God’s mercy is in this moment in time, it is a moment, and His mercy endures forever.
If you or perhaps your church is walking alone we invite you to contact us. God bless you wherever you are and keep you healthy and safe!
Grace, mercy and peace!
Bp. Jerold Gliege
Of greatest importance and joy was the reception of Bp. Nestor Misigaro into the full communion of our jurisdiction. We have known Bp. Nestor for five years and it was timely that he was received into the EOC communion and the college of bishops.
Written by Pentecostal pastor and orthodox theologian Peter Halldorf, "To love your neighbours church as your own" informs the reader about the nature of the Church and her intrinsic unity. Now translated into english and available here
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten from the Father before all time, Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not created; consubstantial with the Father, through whom all things came into being: Who for us all and because our salvation came down from heaven, was made flesh by the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried; and rose on the third day, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father; and will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead! His kingdom shall have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, and Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father, Who is worshipped and glorified together with the Father and the Son, Who spoke through the prophets; and in One, Holy, Catholic, and apostolic Church. We confess one baptism for the remission of sins. We look forward to the Resurrection of the dead, and the Life of the age to come. Amen.
