Our Church & Faith
St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Dartmouth, Massachusetts is
under the jurisdiction of the Metropolis of Boston under the Greek
Orthodox Archdiocese of America, an eparchy of the Holy
Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
We belong to the Universal Orthodox Church whose founder is
Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. It has its ancient beginnings on
the day of the Holy Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended upon
the Holy Apostles in Jerusalem, who by their preaching founded
Christian churches throughout the Holy Land, Asia Minor, Syria,
Egypt, Greece, Cyprus, and throughout the Roman Empire.
The Orthodox Church today consists by the Apostolic Succession,
the elder of the worldwide communion of Orthodox Churches,
including the native churches of Russia and other former Soviet
republics, the churches of Greece and the Balkan countries, and all
Orthodox Christian churches of the diaspora in all continents,
numbering nearly 300 million souls, one of the largest Christian
religious denominations in the world.
The Orthodox Church is a highly Biblical church, having as its
sources of Revelation the Holy Bible and the Sacred Tradition. It is
led by our bishops, according to the Episcopal Apostolic Succession,
it adheres to the Nicene Constantinopolitan Creed, the decisions of
the Seven Ecumenical Councils, accepts the wisdom, the faith and
the teachings of the Great Fathers of the Church and honors greatly
the saints, especially the holy martyrs, who gave their lives for
their faith and loyalty to the Son of God, Jesus Christ, the Second
Person of the Holy Trinity.
