For almost 100 years we have served as a witness to the ancient Eastern Orthodox Faith to the people of Kern County. Our services are predominantly in English as we serve the diverse and vibrant Orthodox Community of Kern County.
In addition to numerous converts to the Orthodox Faith, we are also blessed to have Orthodox Christian members of many various ethnic backgrounds, including Greek, Russian, Ukranian, Romanian, Serbian, Moldavian, Egyptian, Eritrean, Ethiopian, Mexican, and Vietnamese, as well as from the Holy Land and much of the Middle East including Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.
If you are unfamiliar with the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith, you'll find a great deal of information under the "Our Faith" tab. You can also view a three part video series on the origins of the Orthodox Church: "Beginnings", "Byzantium", and "A Hidden Treasure".

Quotes from the Saints
"As the Holy Trinity, our God is One Being, although Three Persons, so, likewise, we ourselves must be one. As our God is indivisible, we also must be indivisible, as though we were one man, one mind, one will, one heart, one goodness, without the smallest admixture of malice - in a word, one pure love, as God is Love. "That they may be one, even as We are One" (John 17:22)."
