Our Orthodox Christian Metropolia stands firm in its adherence to the Holy Tradition of the Orthodox Church of Church, teaching and preaching the Holy Gospel of Our God and Lord Jesus Christ, following in the teachings and traditions of the Holy Apostles, Fathers, and Ecumenical Councils. Therefore, we resist and anathematize the Ecumenical and Modernist heresies, since they compromise the mission of the Orthodox Christian Faith.

Our Sacred Mission is to preserve unadulterated the Sacred Tradition of the Holy Fathers of the Orthodox Church; to continue the mission of the One, Holy Apostolic Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ to the nations to whom our service has been entrusted; to endeavor at every hour to spread the message of salvation granted to the Holy Apostles as Our Lord commands, to do, as the Canticle in the Gospel states: “to be a light to the revelation of the Gentiles, and the glory of Thy people Israel” (Lk. 2:32).

For a much clearer exposition of our Church’s position on the critical issues affecting Orthodoxy today, please read the Clergy Confession approved by our Metropolitan.
