St. Cyril of Jerusalem Orthodox Church has been serving the spiritual needs of those living in Montgomery/North Harris County since 2004. All services are in English.
Below is a list of values that drive the way we live out our spiritual lives as a community.
Living Up to Our True Potential
Every person born into this world has been endowed with the image of God and is therefore capable of eternal life in Christ. Our missions purpose is to lead people to eternal life.
“And this is eternal life, that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, Whom You have sent.” (John 17:3)
Liturgy: The Work of the Lord
We hold that the liturgical and sacramental life of the Church is “what comes first” and that all other activities (programs, dinners, festivals, etc.) in the parish are complimentary to the above.
Faith and Works
Every member of the parish, young and old, is called to be a full participant in all aspects of the Church’s life. Each member has an invaluable gift to offer the Body of Christ no matter how simple. After the worship (litourgia) comes the service (diakonia). The service of the Church is the work of the Body of Christ by which the Church is built up.
Spreading the Gem of Orthodox Christianity to the Community
Orthodox Christianity is vitally relevant to the lives of this generation. Orthodoxy in America is not a “religious-cultural museum” but the fullness of the Apostolic Faith--its teachings and traditions handed down from one generation to the next “without addition, without subtraction.” For this reason, we seek at all times and in every way, to share our faith to all those whom we come into contact with.
