Looking for a Christ-Centered Church?
We’re not Jewish, but we are Orthodox We’re not Roman, but we are Catholic We’re not Protestant, but the Bible came from us We’re not Denominational, we’re Pre-Denominational
St. George Orthodox Church is a center for Christian worship, teaching and ministry in Fishers, Indiana. Founded in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1926, we are in communion with the ancient Orthodox Christian Church whose history goes all the way back to the time of Christ and His Apostles.
You may have heard us referred to as “Greek Orthodox” or “Eastern Orthodox.” We are the original Christian Church of Jerusalem, the Holy Land, Greece, Asia, Africa and the Slavic countries. Our history in North America goes back to 1794 when Orthodox missionaries first arrived to minister to the Native Peoples of Alaska. We believe that God is not an angry and vengeful judge anxious to destroy sinners. Rather, He is the loving and eternally merciful God who created the universe and called it “good.” He made mankind in His own image and likeness for a life of joyful communion with Him. Despite our failings, sins and mistakes, He never ceases to love and freely offer His mercy, forgiveness and grace. The Word of God became man, the carpenter Jesus of Nazareth, and revealed Himself to us as the Way, the Truth and the Life. By His death on the cross, He destroyed the power of death, hell and the devil. And by His glorious Resurrection He arose victorious over every foe and power, offering to us participation in His very life. Jesus Christ founded His Church to be His body on earth as a fellowship of healing, teaching and communion. The Church is a hospital for healing the sick, the wounded and the weak.

This year we observe the feast of St. George today (as April 23 happened to be Lazarus Saturday). A blessed nameday to those named George (or Georgia, Georgette, etc.)! We enjoyed a beautiful liturgy with some of the area clergy who joined us this morning. A mosaic of St. George like this one has been commissioned by the Knights of St. George (our men's fellowship), and it is being made now in Lebanon, to be placed in the transom above the great doors on the exterior of the church, in honor of their patron. May God grant our Knights many years! ... See MoreSee Less
