Welcome to your local Orthodox Christian Church--Welcome Home!
You and your family are always welcome to join us. When you visit, we invite you to fellowship after the Sunday morning service. Our services are easy to follow and are conducted in both Greek and English, as well as other languages of traditionally Orthodox lands. We encourage you to contact Father Christopher directly by email: CLICK HERE or by phone at: 410.524.0990 to learn more about our church community, local outreach, and ministry.
'The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.'
At Saint George, we seek to:
Proclaim and live the Orthodox Christian Faith in its fullness as faithful members of the Body of Christ.
Embrace the journey of becoming Christ-like together.
To become awakened and transformed by the love and mercy of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Commit to helping every person believe in Jesus Christ, belong to His Church, and glorify His Kingdom.
Believe in the name of Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit and through His Church to let all know that God loves His people.
Be a holy community where faith and real life intersect and bring Jesus Christ into all of our lives and world.
Synodikon of the 7th Ecumenical Council
As the prophets beheld,
as the apostles have taught,
as the Church has received,
as the teachers have declared,
as the world has agreed,
as grace has shown forth,
as truth has been revealed,
as falsehood has been dispelled,
as wisdom has become manifest,
as Christ awarded;
Thus we declare;
thus we affirm;
thus we proclaim Christ our true God,
and honor His saints in words, writings, thoughts, sacrifices, churches, and holy icons; On the one hand, worshiping and reverencing Christ as God and Lord,
and on the other, honoring the saints as true servants of the same Lord of all,
and offering them proper veneration.
This is the faith of the apostles!
This is the faith of the fathers!
This is the faith of the Orthodox!
This is the faith on which the world is established!
Therefore, with fraternal and filial love we praise the heralds of the faith,
those who with glory and honor have struggled for the faith,
and we say: to the champions of Orthodoxy, 'faithful emperors, most-holy patriarchs, hierarchs, teachers, martyrs, and confessors: May your memory be eternal.
Let us beseech God that we may be instructed and strengthened by the trials and struggles of these saints, which they endured for the faith even unto death, and by their teachings, entreating that we may to the end emulate their godly life.
May we be deemed worthy of obtaining our requests through the mercy and grace of the Great and First Hierarch, Christ our God, through the intercessions of our glorious Lady, the Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary, the divine angels and all the Saints.
