Orthodox Church in Philippines


About us and our Mission


The Orthodox Communities, Parishes and Monasteries in Philippines are under the Spiritual Jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and South East Asia.


The Mission of the Orthodox Church in South East Asia, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that He has commanded” so that all people may be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth:


To preach, in accordance with God’s will, the fullness of the gospel of the Kingdom to the peoples of South East Asia and to invite them to become members of the Orthodox Church.


To utilize for her mission the various languages of the peoples of this continent.


To be the body of Christ in South East Asia and to be faithful to the tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church.


To witness to the truth, and by God’s grace and in the power of the Holy Spirit, to reveal Christ’s way of sanctification and eternal salvation to all.
