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.
We need palms, candles, flowers and many other items for Holy Week, and we'd like everyone to share in the privilege of offering something in thanksgiving to our Lord for His loving condescension. You don’t have to shop for them, as we are taking care of procuring them, but you can simply select what you want to offer and the amount you are able to give toward it.
You can do this securely online now and include the names of the living and departed you want remembered. We will remember all those who have given these offerings, those for whose health they are given, and those in whose memory they are offered at the proskomide for the Resurrection Liturgy, 11 p.m. on April 20. ...

Nevertheless, we have recent immigrants from the Middle East, who are more comfortable praying in Arabic, and we are pleased to welcome them and to serve all. ... See MoreSee Less
