Mission

The mission of the St. Basil Malankara Orthodox Church is essentially the continuation of the ministry of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Gospel portions record Jesus commissioning his Disciples to certain specific mission. Jesus sends forth his twelve apostles (St. Matthew 10) as well as seventy others (St. Luke 10) with mission strategies to speak about the Kingdom of God warning them about possible persecution and challenges. St. Matthew 28 records Jesus Christ expanding the mission of the disciples by entrusting them with what is known as the Great Commission in the very words “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” Foundationally, this is the mission that has been entrusted to the Church.

Families

Want to join us in making a difference? In this season of giving, we need your help! Our St. Basil Orthodox Church's Mar Gregorios Orthodox Christian Student Movement is planning an initiative to raise money to build a house for a family in need. Recently in the state of Kerala which is located in south India, there have been devastating floods that left thousands of families homeless. These events have left families struggling and left many children on the streets. We hope to gift a loving home to a family who has been left on the street because of this natural calamity using the money we raise.

We humbly ask for your thoughts, prayers, and generous contributions to help make this vision of making a positive change in this family’s life into reality.
Thank you and God bless!

Policies and processes
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
