THE NEXT HOLY SYNOD
Will be held in 2021. The Western auxiliary synod have been postponed due to the Covid 19 pandemic. The first African auxiliary synod was held in December 2019 in Kampala
Currently, there are EOC churches and parishes in Uganda, D.R Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Sweden, Canada and the USA
As the Church faces the season of Advent we, in the EOC, have a special incentive to await the return of Christ. This last week we lost one of our stalwart priests, Fr. John Kolbo. Fr. John was a man of faith and joy and his presence was always stimulating and vibrant. His life is an icon to us of what life will be like in the Kingdom to come and so Advent takes on a heightened anticipation for us this year.
Grace, mercy and peace!
Bp. Jerold Gliege
WHY WE ARE HERE
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.
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.
