Message from Father John

Welcome to the website of St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church, Las Vegas, Nevada. Our 10 acre campus is crowned by a beautiful Byzantine Church and magnificent Community and Education Center, and located in the Southwest area of the valley. 

Our Lord says, “You are the light of the world.  A city set on a hill cannot be hid.” (Matthew 5:14)  While it may seem to many an anomaly to have a large and dynamic Orthodox Christian community in what the world identifies as “Sin City,” we see ourselves as a light shining in the darkness – not the flashy lights usually associated with Las Vegas, but the Light of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

As you navigate our website, we pray your heart and mind will be illumined by the truth and glory of our ancient Orthodox Christian Faith and inspired by the many ways we shine His Light in our community. 

We invite you to join us for worship and fellowship, and to explore our ministries.  

Love in Christ, 

Fr John Hondros
