“O come, let us worship and fall down before Christ. O son of God crucified in the flesh, save us who sing to Thee: Alleluia”

Currently there is no established Orthodox parish on the Southern Oregon coast.  By God's grace, we seek to be that presence.  As Orthodox Christians we hope to bring the faith of the early Church to the Coos Bay, and the surrounding areas, by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As all Orthodox Churches, we profess the truth of the Nicene Creed:

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.  And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of Light; true God of true God; begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man. And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried. And the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; whose Kingdom shall have no end.
Welcome, and thank you for visiting the website for the Coos Bay Orthodox Fellowship! We are a small group of Eastern Orthodox Christians in the southern coastal region around the Coos Bay, Oregon area seeking to serve our Lord Jesus Christ by spreading the good news and the ancient faith of Orthodox Christianity.  
In November 2015, we were blessed to become a mission station under the omophorian of His Eminence, Archbishop Benjamin, of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA).

Currently, we meet regularly for Reader's Vespers and to study Scripture and Orthodox writings together.  We hope, by God's grace, to grow into a thriving Orthodox parish that will serve the whole of the Southern Oregon Coast- including Coos Bay, North Bend, Bandon, Coquille, Reedsport, Gold Beach and the surrounding areas.  

Come join us as we worship and grow together.  We welcome all Orthodox Christians as well as those who are curious about the Orthodox faith.  We look forward to meeting you!

    God loves us more than a father, mother, friend, or any else could love, and even more than we are able to love ourselves.

    Orthodox Christianity is the oldest form of Christianity, sharing historic roots with the Roman Catholic Church until 1054 A.D. Most Americans have never heard of Orthodoxy, but we invite all to come and see the beauty, spiritual richness, theological depth, and life-transforming power of this ancient faith.
  3. St. Isaac the Syrian, 7th Century
    St. Isaac the Syrian, 7th Century
    As a handful of sand is thrown into the ocean, so are the sins of all flesh as compared with the mind of God. Just as a strongly flowing fountain is not blocked up by a handful of earth, so the compassion of the Creator is not overcome by the sins of His creatures.
  4. St. Isaac the Syrian
    St. Isaac the Syrian
    The soul that loves God has its rest in God and in God alone. In all the paths that men walk in in the world, they do not attain peace until they draw nigh to hope in God.
  5. St. Silouan the Athonite
    St. Silouan the Athonite
    The Lord loves all people, but He loves those who seek Him even more. To his chosen ones the Lord gives such great grace that for love they forsake the whole earth, the whole world, and their souls burn with desire that all people might be saved and see the glory of the Lord.
