St. Ignatius of Antioch Orthodox Christian Church is a parish of the Diocese of Los Angeles and the West of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. Our parish is made up of a wide variety of people from all walks of life and includes those who were born into the faith and those who chose the faith later in life. Our services are mostly in English with occasional parts in different languages to minister to the wide variety of ethnic backgrounds represented among our people.

Women's Annunciation Tea - 03/23/19

On March 23, the women of St. Ignatius in Twin Falls, Idaho held their 4th annual Annunciation Tea. They had a great turnout for their small parish of roughly 40 ladies of varying ages, and everyone had an excellent time! Marni Porath of the local nonprofit Rising Stars Therapeutic Riding Center was the guest of honor. She delivered an excellent and heartfelt presentation about Rising Stars, a non-profit offering equine therapeutic riding and equine assisted therapy to children and adults with disabilities. Following this and the delicious tea party fare, a slide presentation was given to introduce the newcomers to the Theotokos. Finally, a silent auction was held, with nearly $260 raised for the Antiochian Women's 2019 Project: building a new cathedral for the Antiochian Village! We look forward to next year's tea, and can't wait to welcome the local ladies with good food, hot tea, fun fellowship, and the pure joy of our Most Holy Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary!

We are not Jewish, but we are Orthodox
We are not Roman, but we are Catholic
We are not Protestant, but the Bible came from us
We are not Denominational, we are Pre-Denominational

"We did not set out to discover Orthodoxy. We set out to find out what the Ancient Church was really like and in doing so we discovered Orthodoxy." – Very Reverend Father Gordon Walker, Protestant Pastor who converted to Orthodoxy

“As we read, a whole new world came into existence. A world where without any question there was, number one, vitality, but where there was also, secondly, there was Liturgy. To discover that there was Liturgy in the Ancient Church came as a horrendous shock. To find out that there was Liturgy in that Bible that I thought I knew so well was frightening. And I began to ask, ‘What else is there in there that I don’t understand?’ I began to run into the word in the Bible, the word ‘Eucharist.’ Oh, we don’t usually translated it that way in the English Bible, we just translate it ‘the giving of thanks’ or ‘giving thanks’ but the word was there. The very word that we took into the English language as ‘Eucharist’ was right there in the Bible.” – Very Reverend Father Jon Braun, Protestant Pastor who converted to Orthodoxy

"The Orthodox Church understands herself as Catholic - the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church as referred to in the Nicene Creed. She keeps the “faith once delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3) and does not deviate from it - regardless of the trends of the society at any given time. This includes first and foremost the belief in all the articles of the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed and the ancient ecumenical councils of the “undivided Church” of the first millennium, but also and equally the now-contested biblical teachings regarding marriage, man and woman, the family, conception, birth, and the end of human life on this earth. In this sense, Orthodoxy is a “sign of contradiction” (Luke 2:34) in this age and culture. However, it is precisely for the salvation of people and the world that the Church stands in critical dialogue with the culture. And the Orthodox pastoral approach, while never relativistic or merely emotive, is one of great compassion and flexibility." -- Reverend Father Matthew Baker
