"The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational - it is pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost 2,000 years ago."
The African Orthodox Church was organized in America in 1921 by +Archbishop George Alexander McGuire. In 1934 +Archbishop Daniel William Alexander organized the African Orthodox Church through out East Africa and established a Seminary in Kenya where over 10,000 persons were affected by the African Orthodox Church of Africa.
His Holiness, Alexander II, Patriarch
The African Orthodox Church of Africa.,
As God's church continue to strive forward in a diverse society, where his people converse in their reasoning to choose the means to serve him.
We feel it to be paramount that the faith and wisdom given us to attain that means is through a divine growth, Spiritually in self and in the family.
Our Liturgy express the Divine love of Christ through our worship and a personal touch where the clergy knows each of their parishers by their names and families.
The churches are community base which serve families within the area they are located, but the doors of Gods church is forever open to ALL who wish to cherish and worship God.
The Priest are always available to assist in helping you to achieve your spiritually, and you have an invitation to taste and see what God has to offer you at one of our parishes.
