Welcome to St. Stephen's Syrian Orthodox Church - Abu Dhabi

St. Stephen's Syrian Orthodox Church - Abu Dhabi, belongs to Jacobite Syriac Orthodox Church of India. Syriac Orthodox Church is an integral part of the Universal Syriac Orthodox Church with the Patriarch of Antioch His Holiness Moran Mor Ignatius Aphrem II as its Supreme Head and His Beatitude Aboon Mor Baselios Thomas I as the Catholicose.

The Holy Bible in the Book of Acts 11:26 records, "… and the believers were called Christians first in Antioch."

The first among the Bishops of Antioch was St. Peter who is believed to have established a Church at Antioch in AD 37. Thus the Syriac Orthodox Church justifiably prides itself as being one of the earliest established Apostolic Churches, established during the very dawn of Christianity.
