Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Concord is a living organism under direct jurisdiction of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco, which functions under the auspices of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, which is the Eparchy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in the United States of America.

Orthodoxy, a way of life, is known for its experiential approach to faith and doctrine. Rooted in the Bible, its faith and doctrine is enriched by the living commentaries of the lives of the saints of the past and the present. It is enriched by the theological speculations of the Fathers and Teachers of the Church, and by the decrees of the various councils which dealt with doctrinal aberrations (heresies). As an introduction to the Doctrine of the Orthodox Church, we will deal with the Tradition of the Church and the Holy Bible, part of this tradition, as the source of our Christian faith and doctrine.

I. SACRED TRADITION AND THE DOCTRINE OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH

II. FORMS OF THE DOGMATIC TRADITION

III. THE DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH -- ORTHODOX DOGMA AND BELIEF

IV. THE DIVINE PLAN OF SALVATION

V. ORTHODOX ESCHATOLOGY

The Orthodox Church traces its history back to the first century Church in Jerusalem, founded by our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. The Church is fully conscious of this history. Actually, she celebrates it, marking important events in her history throughout the year with special celebrations. Also, the Church is aware of the Historical Christian truths that form the essential fabric and common heritage that belongs to all Christians of all ages in all ages.

We are a parish of all ages, of those born into Orthodox Christian families and those newer to the Faith. We are located across the Chronicle Pavilion in Concord, at 1955 Kirker Pass Road. Visitors heartily welcome!
