First Steps Within the Church

Why Should Christians Attend Church?

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord (Psalm 121:1). People often ask priests: “Why should we go to church every Sunday?” and then they begin to justify themselves.

The layout of an Orthodox Church

Churches are built in specific shapes to represent different aspects of our Faith: shape of a cross (Jesus dying on the cross), shape of a ship (Noah’s ark, a safe place in our stormy lives), a circle (church is a reflection of the Kingdom of God).
