Denomination   Eastern Orthodox
The Orthodox Church, the oldest continuing Christian body in existence, is more well-known in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. This is a very traditional faith with a very strong tie to its roots in the first millennium A.D. We maintain the original Christian creed, baptize by triple immersion, and have all the Sacraments or Mysteries. Church government is conciliar in nature (there is no Pope figure), with ancient historic bishoprics sharing communion and an absolutely identical confession of faith, but bureaucratically separate from each other. This is a church which has never had a reformation, since the "deformations" of medieval Catholicism never occurred in the Orthodox East.
We are a warm and small congregation of converts to this ancient Christian Faith. The way the worship and services are held here shows the universal heritage of all Western Christian people; all of us were once united in these ways of prayers and church life. But there is really no way to describe a Christianity so unique in the middle of Catholic and Protestant styles; we invite those who want to know about their heritage to visit us and to experience the Holy Liturgy with us. God bless you!
