St. Peter & Paul Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church is a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America under the jurisdiction of the Orthodox Christian Church, whose roots trace directly back to first century Antioch, the city in which the disciples of Jesus Christ were first called Christians (Acts 11:26). The Orthodox Church is the oldest and second largest Christian group in the world. We are called by God our Creator to worship and follow Him, and to proclaim to the world His message of love, peace, and salvation.
The Antiochian Archdiocese, under the leadership of His Eminence Metropolitan PHILIP Saliba, sees itself on a mission to bring America to the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith. St. Peter & Paul Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church joins their brothers and sisters in the various other Orthodox Christian jurisdictions affiliated through SCOBA (the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the Americas) — Greek, Orthodox Church in America, Romanian, Ukrainian, and more — in this endeavor. In less than 20 years the Archdiocese has doubled in size to well over 200 churches and missions throughout the United States and Canada.
