The Holy Orthodox Church is “the household of God, which is the Church of the living God, the pillar and bulwark of the truth” [1 Timothy 3.15]. We are not an organization or ideology, but the very “Body of Christ” our God [1 Corinthians 12.1], “the fulness of Him Who fills all in all” [Ephesians 1. 23].
The Christian Faith is not a system of beliefs but a way of life - life in Christ. Although right belief and doctrine is important, the true mark of a Christian is a life lived to the glory of God in the fellowship of Christ's one, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. Holy Protection Orthodox Christian Mission is Christ’s One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church in the City of Fort Saskatchewan, located along the North Saskatchewan River just North-east of Edmonton, Alberta's capital City.
Orthodox Christianity is not mere knowledge. Our faith is experiential. It is a lifestyle. To be sure, within the Orthodox lifestyle, there is a rich wealth of information about the Historic Orthodox faith, but to the Orthodox Christian, "faith" is both believing and doing.
We teach and live the Christian Faith given to the Holy Apostles by Jesus Christ Himself, and passed on through almost two millennia without addition or subtraction, seeking to glorify God the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit through Godly worship, faithful teaching, and virtuous living, as taught by the Apostles, and as witnessed by the saints in every age.
