Our Beliefs and Practices
At St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church, we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and embrace the Orthodox Christian faith. Our beliefs and practices are founded on the Holy Scriptures, the Holy Tradition, and the teachings of the Ecumenical Councils. We believe in the Holy Trinity, the incarnation of Christ, the sanctity of the sacraments, and the importance of prayer, repentance, and love for one another.
Our church offers a variety of worship services throughout the week, providing opportunities for both communal and personal prayer. We hold weekly Sunday Divine Liturgies, where we come together as a congregation to celebrate the Eucharist and receive the Body and Blood of Christ. Additionally, we offer special services during feast days and liturgical seasons.
During our worship services, we engage in liturgical rituals, chant hymns, recite prayers, and listen to sermons that offer insights into our faith and help us deepen our spiritual connection with God. Our church follows the Byzantine Rite, which combines ancient traditions, sacred music, and symbolic gestures.
