Our Mission

WHO WE ARE..?

    • We gather together to Worship with sound preaching and quality music.
    • We support each other in our struggles to learn and practice what it means to live the Gospel in our individual and collective lives.
    • Service to our community and beyond with our financial and personal resources.

    OUR MISSION

    St. Baselios Malankara (Indian) Othodox Church, Elmont is an open community where people experience God and follow Jesus in amazing ways.

    The Church has its distinct identity

    • As God’s own people,(1 Pet. 2:9)
    • The household of God, (1 Pet. 4:17; Eph. 2:19 & 1 Tim.3:15)
    • As the Body of Christ (Eph. 1:23 & 4:12; Col. 1:18)
    • As the Bride of Christ (2 Cor. 11:2 & Eph. 5:25-32)

    OUR VISION

    • … that everyone who walks in the door will be received with the same grace and hospitality we would offer Christ.
    • …that they will experience compassion, healing and wholeness as if it came from Christ himself.
