The Purpose of the Orthodox Christian Parish 

 

      What is the purpose of the Church, and of the parish within her? The answer is given in the word of God. The Apostle Paul writes: “To the Church of God…to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours…God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord…” (1 Cor. 1:2-10).
