From the beginning

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon and touched with our hands, concerning the word of life -- the life was made manifest, and we saw it, and testify to it, and proclaim to you the eternal life which was with the Father and was made manifest to us -- that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you may have fellowship with us; and our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 

I John 1: 1 - 3



St. Innocent Orthodox Church is a parish of the Diocese of The West, The Orthodox Church in America (OCA), located in Tarzana CA, a city area/ neighborhood of Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley.  Our parish has existed since 1955 and gathers a diverse community from many backgrounds united in the Orthodox Confession of the Faith in Jesus Christ our Lord. 

We have recieved the following Mission Statment form the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America, adopted in 1990. As a parish, our mission is to implement this charge on the local level of our community in the Valley.

The Mission of the Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all [things that He has] commanded” so that all people may be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth:

To preach, in accordance with God’s will, the fullness of the gospel of the Kingdom to the peoples of North America and to invite them to become members of the Orthodox Church.

To utilize for her mission the various languages of the peoples of this continent.

To be the body of Christ in North America and to be faithful to the tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church.

To witness to the truth, and by God’s grace and in the power of the Holy Spirit, to reveal Christ’s way of sanctification and eternal salvation to all.
