THE NEXT HOLY SYNOD
Will be held in 2021. Two auxiliary synods will be held in the interim. One for Africa in Kampala, Dec 3 - 6th 2019 and one for the West in Sweden May 2020.
WHY WE ARE HERE
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.
The Evangelical Orthodox Church met together in August for Holy synod and for conference. The meetings were hosted by St. Paul the Apostle Church in Indianapolis. Delegates came from Burundi, Canada, Sweden, Rwanda, Uganda and The United States of America. Synod took place first followed by a conference of teaching, fellowship and fun.
The decision that the EOC will function with two auxiliary synods; one in east Africa and the other in Europe and the Americas, was confirmed and highlighted. Each synod will meet facilitating ministry in their areas and each second year they will join in Holy Synod.
Skye Jethani, our guest conference speaker, shared with us the great shifts he sees happening in the Church at large and challenged us to be a Church that facilitates worship of God and prayer.
Our gathering together was reflective of what the psalmist expressed; how pleasant and good it is when brothers and sisters dwell together in unity.
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.
