We endeavor to bring the ancient Faith of Christ and the Apostles to the people of Frederick County and beyond.  Nearly all of our members are former Protestants who have discovered the treasures of Holy Orthodoxy and the richness of a sacramental life in Christ.

The word “orthodox” comes from the Greek language and literally means “correct worship and belief.” In Orthodox Christianity worship and belief are inseparable. As we worship so we believe. The Orthodox Church is neither “Protestant” nor “Roman Catholic” but constitutes a unique reflection of the historic Christian faith. Orthodox Christianity traces its roots, both historical and spiritual, from the time of the Apostles.
