Jim Giatas

Mission Statement

The Nicene Creed A.D.381
I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages.
Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten not created, of one essence with the Father through whom all things were made.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became man.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and he suffered and was buried.
On the third day he rose according to the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and dead. His kingdom will have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who together with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who spoke through the prophets.
In one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
I expect the resurrection of the dead.
And the life of the ages to come.


Jim Giatas (The "i" is silent and the "a" is soft) is a non-commercial Orthodox Christian singer/songwriter who proclaims the good news of life in Christ. In these perilous end-times, Jim is blessed with a clear sense of vision as a serious artist who writes and performs songs with uncompromising lyrics firmly based in the Holy Scriptures and in the Holy Tradition of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Orthodox Church In this age of confusion, compromise, secularization, and the dulling of our doctrinal acuity, we emphasize apostolic tradition, continuity, and conservatism over a 2,000 year history.

Jim has accepted the great commission of the Lord Jesus Christ as his great and only lifework - to forsake all and to lead people to God through Orthodox Christianity. The life of Christ richly dwells in Jim as he ministers in spiritual songs, singing with grace in his heart for the Lord.

Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away."
