St. George Indian Orthodox Church
St. George Indian Orthodox Church, the first Indian Orthodox Church in San Antonio-Texas, was formed to bring together people with mutual belief, interest
and passion under one roof to provide a platform to interact with one another, keep alive our ties with Kerala, our home land and pass on our rich heritage and
values to future generation.
Our Mission is to respond to the call of our Lord Jesus Christ, to minister to those who are suffering and are in need throughout the world, sharing with them
God's gifts of food, shelter, economic self-sufficiency and hope.
The Indian Orthodox Church is in the family of and in full communion with Oriental Orthodox Churches. Indian Orthodox Church traces its Christian heritage
as far back as A. D. 52 when St. Thomas, one of the Disciples of Lord Jesus Christ, came to India and established Christianity. People of this southern Indian
province were known as the St. Thomas Syrian Christians" because our liturgy was in Syriac or in Aramaic which was the language spoken by Jesus Christ
himself. We continue to use 'Syriac' language as part of our worship and prayers.
The Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, also known as the Indian Orthodox Church, is an autocephalous Oriental Orthodox church. The Church was founded by St. Thomas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ.
Our Mission is to respond to the call of our Lord Jesus Christ, to minister to those who are suffering and are in need throughout the world, sharing with them God’s gifts of food, shelter, economic self-sufficiency and hope.
The teachings and the practices of the Orthodox Church are to be found in the Scriptures and Sacred Apostolic Tradition, which have been handed down to the Church of Christ in the Revelation of God.Read More...
