As part of the body of Christ, we place our faith and trust in the original spirtual truths of the ancient Apostolic faith of Orthodox Christendom as professed in the Nicene Creed. Accepting Holy Scripture as the inspired Word of the Triune Godhead of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that preserving the ancient ancestoral roots of the Christian faith and it's traditions to be essential for the spiritual well being of all Christians, the salvation of our Nation and the hope for those who have yet to discover the promise of Christ's love and forgiveness in their lives.
The clergy of St. Basil's would welcome an opportunity to share with you any information concerning the unconditional love of Christ, the ancient Apostolic Faith of Orthodox Christendom or the American Apostolate of Western Rite Orthodoxy and its sacraments.

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
