THE BIRTH OF OUR CHURCH 33AD...

                       THE BIRTH OF OUR PARISH 2006AD

Orthodox Christianity...is the oldest of the churches that call themselves Christian.

In the 20th c. alone, an estimated 40 million Orthodox Christians gave their lives for their faith! So high is the commitment of many Orthodox Christians to Christ and His Church, She has often been called “the Church of the Martyrs.” She is the Church of all the great Christian theologians, scholars, and writers of antiquity like Athanasius, Ambrose, Basil, and Chrysostom, but also of such modern writers as Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Even celebrities like Tom Hanks, and Jennifer Aniston. Atheletes like Novak Djokovic, Troy Polamalu, Maria Sharapova!

The Orthodox Church is the original Christian Church, the Church founded by the Lord Jesus Christ and described in the pages of the New Testament. Her history can be traced in unbroken continuity all the way back to Christ and His Twelve Apostles. For over twenty centuries she has continued in her undiminished and unaltered faith and practice. Today her apostolic doctrine, worship, and structure remain intact. The Orthodox Church maintains that the Church is the living Body of Jesus Christ.

Throughout the world the Orthodox Christian church is organized into various dioceses and jurisdictions. However, the Orthodox Church is One Church – one faith and communion. This Church is based in the life, ministry, and teachings of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who has come in to the world as a man for the sake of our salvation. This is the foundational belief of every true Christian. “Orthodox” means right teaching or right worship, and we understand our Orthodox Christian faith to be the full and right revelation of God’s desire for us to believe in Him, know Him, abide in Him and receive eternal life from Him.

 Our Lord said "I AM the WAY." Come join us!


 WELCOME TO OUR CHRISTIAN FAMILY!

Our Parish Community embraces the Gospel of Jesus Christ and is dedicated to the worship of the Holy Trinity, the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  We are named in honor of the Holy Spirit, who is co-equal with the Father and the Son and who is the Life of the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.  The fruits of the Spirit include love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These fruits represent the goals and aspirations of our faithful members in the Body of Christ.  These goals demonstrate our awareness of the seriousness of the Christian life and our commitment to witness to a life in Communion with God and through Him with each other!


From the Church Fathers!

"The empty years of our desires separates us from our heavenly homeland, and our love for these desires, and our habits, clothe us in ugliness, what the Apostle calls "the old adam."  But, we who are wanderers in the journey of this life call out to God for help!  We must divest ourselves of this repulsiveness, and clothe ourselves with new desires, and form new habits, and foster a love for the Coming Age.  Through this, we will learn whether the Kingdom of God will be heaven or hell." 

                                                      St. Herman of Alaska

 



The Council in Crete

Monday, February 26

6:30pm

St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church

Fifty years in the planning, what was to be heralded by Orthodox Christians around the world as the Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church was convened by the Ecumenical Patriarch of the Orthodox Church, June 19-26, 2016, in Kolymvari, Crete.

While all autocephalous Orthodox churches were summoned, for various reasons not all chose to send official representatives. Among the documents issued by the Council, the document on ecumenism has proved to be the most controversial. All Holy Spirit (Greek) and St. Nicholas (Serbian) Orthodox churches cordially invite you to hear Orthodox theologian Professor George Demacopoulos's frank and expert discussion on this important topic. Light refreshments provided. For more information, contact Dr. Nicolae Roddy, Professor of Theology, nroddy@creighton.edu
