Our Faith / Наша вера

We are a Serbian Orthodox Christian congregation living the ancient, biblical faith of the New Testament Church; a part of the same Church that was founded by Christ, preached by His apostles, and carried on by their successors, through the centuries, to us today.

The faith we live is the faith of the New Testament Church, devoting ourselves “to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to the prayers” (Acts 2:42), just as the historic New Testament Church was devoted to these. We believe that Jesus is the Word of God made flesh, sent to die for our sins, raise us to eternal life and unite us with His Father in heaven. We believe that knowing about God is not enough – rather, we need a relationship with Him. We believe that sacraments are not just symbolic, but the communication of God’s love to us. In short, we believe that our Church is the present day experience of New Testament Christianity.

There is a lot to Orthodox Christianity – much more than can be adequately dealt with in a single page. However, we have put together some resources that can help.

The official page of the Serbian Orthodox Patriarchate has a brief of our past Archbishops and Patriarchs alongside Constitution of the Serbian Orthodox Church:

The official website of the Metropolitante of Australia and New Zealand contains many useful documents regarding the faith and any relevant constitutions.
