THE CELTIC ORTHODOX CHURCH IS UNIQUE – BY THE GRACE OF GOD

 

BIBLICAL ORTHODOXY IS TRUE ORTHODOXY

 

WE ARE THE ANCIENT CHURCH STILL LIVING

THE FAITH AS ONCE DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS

 

The Celtic Orthodox Church is a Western Rite expression of the Faith from the Johannine Branch of Christianity of those churches founded by the twelve apostles, (Gallican, Celtic, Mozabarec, Coptic, Byzantine.)  The Roman Catholic Church is from the Pauline branch of the Church.    

 

CELTIC ORTHODOXY ESTABLISHED IN 37 AD IS THE

OLDEST WESTERN RITE ORTHODOX CHURCH

________________________________________________

 

WE ARE PART OF BIBLICAL ORTHODOXY

The Celtic Orthodox Church is so

Ancient it demands respect, so

Traditional it is refreshing and so

Conservative it is reassuring

CHRISTIANITY AND TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN

MORALITY IS UNDER DAILY ATTACK.

WHAT SHOULD BE THE RESPONSE OF

CHRISTIANS TO THE POLITICAL ATTACKS

ON CHRISTIANITY AND TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN MORALITY?

APATHY = COMPLICITY

INDIFFERENCE = C0-CONSPIRATOR

TOLERANCE = ENEMIES OF GOD

The people who are attracted to this ancient church feel there is something missing in their present worship.  They feel the Holy Spirit is calling them to a deeper participation in worship.  They feel the need to worship with their bodies as well as their minds and hearts. The holistic worship of the Celtic Orthodox Church satisfies that inner longing in their souls.  Holistic worship employs the whole person in worship. 

   

Holistic worship compels us to kneel and prostrate ourselves before the Christ physically present on the Altar and to bow with our heads low in front of the God of our salvation.  People attracted to the Celtic Orthodox Church are people who appreciate the fact that when they receive the Eucharist, in a very real way they become a Tabernacle of the Most High God as was the Virgin Mary before them. The Virgin Mother of the Christ was the first Tabernacle, and for this reason we call her the Theotokos which means “God bearer”.  Every believer who receives with faith the Divine Sacrifice of the Altar, which we call the Eucharist, becomes a “God bearer”.

 

People who find a home within Celtic Orthodoxy have a clear understanding of being called out from society to be uniquely Gods own.  We obey Christ in worshipping the Father in Spirit and in Truth. We ask the Father to give us the strength to carry the Cross behind Jesus. We do not ask the Father to remove the Cross because we know that only by carrying the Cross do we have synergy with the Father in Christ.

 

We believe the Scriptures form the basics of our faith.  All Sacred truths are found in the Scriptures or directly flow from the Sacred Word of God.  We do not add anything to the Scriptures and we take nothing away from them.  Therefore we reject the “expanded doctrine” theory that would establish a new teaching not found in the Scriptures as the Word of God and in the Apostolic Church.  If the Apostles and the Apostolic Church did not teach it, we do not teach it as required belief.  People who find a home in Celtic Orthodoxy do not accept as dogma what is really only human precepts.
