Welcome to Holy Cross: The Orthodox Church serving the Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point area of North Carolina with services entirely in English.
The Truth of Jesus Christ brings healing, peace, joy and freedom. Our mission is to witness to his Truth to all people in the Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point area.
Jesus Christ established one, and only one eternal and unchanging Church through His Apostles 2,000 years ago – the Orthodox Church – and he promised the gates of hell would not prevail against it. That Church is right here in the Triad area. We welcome everyone to join! More...
Do you want peace, consolation, healing and renewal?
The [Orthodox] Divine services are a blessed fount from which the heavenly Grace abundantly pours forth its gifts upon all those who serve the Lord in fullness of heart – gifts of mercy, peace, consolation, purification, sanctification, enlightenment, healing, renewal, and – what is most precious – the gift of worship, in Divine Liturgy and Holy Communion.
St. John of Kronstadt, "Thoughts on the Divine Liturgy"
The first Christians believed that Jesus Christ knows the suffering of humankind, and chose to become one of us, to live and die with and for us, to save us. So do we.
The first Christians believed that when two or three gather together in His Name, Jesus Christ is present in the midst of them. So do we.
The first Christians believed that when they offered bread and wine for blessing by God, they shared together the true Body and true Blood of Jesus Christ. So do we.
... because we are the first Christians!
The Orthodox Church is the Body of Christ, the ancient Church established by Jesus Christ once, now, and for all ages, unchanged in Faith since the times of the Apostles. No one has ever needed to try to "reform" the Orthodox Church, because it never strayed from the true path of Christ. Nor do the Orthodox need to try to "rediscover" the Apostolic Church, because the Orthodox Church is today what it always has been for more than 2,000 continuous years: the Apostolic Church.
Every Sunday we gather together to stand in the presence of the living God, lifting our hearts to join with the heavenly angels and all the saints, singing in psalms and hymns, in prayer and worship before God. We invite you to join us!
