As some information about the Evangelical Orthodox Church (EOC) on Wikipedia is left out and somewhat misrepresenting, we would like to direct the readers attention to the Encyclopedia of Christianity in the United States (page 834 - 836), edited by George Thomas Kurian and Mark A Lamport for a more comprehensive and accurate description of the current state and history of the EOC. You can read the entry by clicking the "History of the EOC" button under "Resources" here to the left. The EOC will continue to pursue the editors of the current article about the EOC on Wikipedia for improved accuracy of our current state and history.

We are going through tumultuous time in our countries. Besides Covid, the USA and Uganda have gone through political elections. People polarize and in America the identification is either blue or red. Our Fr. Jakob has written a pastoral letter on how the season of lent actually calls us to reflect the Kingdom of God in a way different than that of the world. As we contemplate Lent I trust you will enjoy his pastoral call to all of us. To read the letter please click here.
Grace,mercy and peace to us all!

We are grateful for the new church building that St Paul Evangelical Orthodox Church in Indianapolis has retained and now renovated. May the Lord bless the worship and activities done in this place.
WHY WE ARE HERE
The Evangelical Orthodox Church is a communion
of churches within the one, holy, catholic and apostolic
church. We are a sincere and vital body of believers who
have been touched by the love and grace of God, and
we've committed ourselves to the ancient faith while
embracing our evangelical roots.
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
THE NICENE CREED
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.
