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.

Dear Reader and Friends of the EOC,

 

As I have been reflecting on the political turbulence in all of North America and some ensuing violence and threat of peace, I have gained a new appreciation of our African brethren for whom these situations are much more frequent than what we have experienced. I have a friend who, when I complain, jokingly asks, “why should you have it better than I?” St. Cyprian in his work ON MORTALITY which is an ancient response to a pandemic equal to or worse than we are experiencing infers a similar question, “why are you fighting so hard to live here when you know your home is in heaven?” Life is a hard balance and I encourage us all to live in hope and faith during this time pandemic and unrest.

 

It is with sadness we announce the passing of Fr. Charles Ojuang, pastor and priest of the Sigomre parish in Kenya. May his memory be eternal. Our prayers are with his wife and children.

 

It is still our hope that the COVID protocol of Canada will clear and the consecration of Fr. Jakob Palm to the episcopacy will take place on October 10. Plans are still in the making.

 

The words of Jesus seem appropriate for this season, “ Do not be afraid, I am going to prepare a place for you.”

 

May the peace of Christ and the Christian hope be with you all!

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.  

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.
