We serve as a witness to the ancient Eastern Orthodox Faith to the people of Kern County. We are blessed to have Orthodox Christian members of many various ethnic backgrounds, including Greek, Russian, Ukranian, Romanian, Serbian, Moldavian, Egyptian, Eritrean, Ethiopian, as well as from the Holy Land and much of the Middle East including Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.
Many of our members are from families that have been in Bakesfield for generations. We have also been blessed with a great many converts to the Orthodox Faith.
If you are unfamiliar with the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith, you'll find a great deal of information under the "Our Faith" tab.
"It has become fashionable to attend a church which fits the attended, but we Orthodox have never succumbed to fashion, and rather than attend a church which fits itself to us, we attend the Church which Christ founded for us, and then try to fit ourselves to Him."
