All Saints: Purpose, Mission, Vision

Our Purpose

The Parish is the local Orthodox Eucharistic community and a real manifestation of the living Body of Christ. The Parish exists for the worship of God, according to the tradition of the Orthodox Church. The fulfillment of this purpose requires, first of all, that the Parish be a witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in all of its fullness. The proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ is directed to those both within and outside the Parish, to both Orthodox Christians and non-Orthodox. By obedience to the gospel and adherence to the apostolic faith, members of the parish are offered the opportunity to grow in communion with God through Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit.

 

Our Vision

To be a Church of Saints that are radically faithful to Christ and zealous in fulfilling Christ’s command to “Go into the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all [things that He has] commanded.

 

Our Mission

In order that all might be saved and come to the knowledge of Truth, the Parish serves to live, uphold, and preach the Orthodox Christian Faith in its fullness (as delivered by Christ, taught by the Apostles, and preserved in the Holy Scriptures and Tradition of the Church).
