Thou shalt worship
the Lord thy God,
and Him only shalt thou serve!

(The Gospel according to Matthew, 4:10)

Millions of Orthodox and Catholics today bow to worship before human remains as objects of holy power. They kiss them, get on their knees before them, and believe that this is pleasing to God. But is it? What is the right way to worship God? Where is Truth? What does genuine Orthodoxy consist of? These and other questions are answered by Sergey Zhuravlev in the Orthodox Reformed newspapers The Banner of Christ and The Living Church. Sergey is the head of the Ukrainian Reformed Orthodox Church of Christ the Savior and the Russian Orthodox Reformed Church.
Christ loved the Church and gave Himself up for her, cleansing her with the washing of water by the word; that He might present her to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. (Eph. 5:25-27)


About the author

Sergey Zhuravlev, the archbishop of the Ukrainian Reformed Orthodox Church of Christ the Savior (UROC CS) and the Russian Orthodox Reformed Church, was born May 14th, 1969 in the city of Cheboxar, the capital of Chuvashia [one of the republics in the Russian Federation]. He was brought to repentance in a miraculous way and turned to God in 1982. In 1988 he began his service in the traditional Russian Orthodox Church (ROC MP) as a cantor and sexton in the Orel-Bryansk diocese.

In 1991, after brief service as a deacon, he was appointed to the priesthood and served first as the regular cleric of Ryazan, and then as the head of the Bryansk diocese of the ROC. The appointments to deaconship and priesthood were both performed by the Honorable Simon, the archbishop of Ryazan and Kasimov who, beginning in 1991, serves as dean of the Orthodox churches of the Ryazan and Bryansk regions.

In 1996, as dean of the Church of St. Basil in the Bryansk region, Father Sergei was drawn back to the Word of God and experienced a personal awakening. In that same year, he left the ROC and was subsequently accused of heresy. Since then, he has worked as a teacher in Protestant (Charismatic, Pentacostal and Baptist) Bible schools and Institutes in Ukraine, making trips into Russia, Israel, USA, Germany, Belgium, France, Belarus and Moldova to teach lectures.

On February, 3rd, 2001 has been imposed and spread on apostolic service and reformatsiju Orthodoxy apostles - Sandeem Adeladzha (Ukraine), Alexey Ledjaevym (Latvia), Kent Mattoks (USA) and John Ekhart (USA).
Sergey was ordained as a bishop on January 14th, 2002, with the blessing of Metropolitan Stephan Linistky, the patriarch of the Apostolic Orthodox Church of the Renewal (AOCR). The ordination was performed by Archbishop Kiriak Temertsidi and Bishops Alexander and Sergey Sarkisovy, with the blessing of Bishop Vitaly Kuzhevatov. The council of bishops of the AOCR appointed Sergei Zhuravlov as Autonomous Archbishop of Kiev, and until the end of 2004 he carried out his ministry in Ukraine.

At the present day, Archbishop Sergey is the first white (i.e. married) Orthodox bishop in Russia since 1946. The Lord has given him a wonderful wife and helper, Inna Sergeevna, and six children Anastasia, Nikolai, Seraphim, Tatiana, Sergey and Inna.

Bishop Sergei is widely acknowledged in the Christian world as the leader of a modern Orthodox Reformation in the territories of the former USSR. The lectures and sermons of the Honorable Sergei, dedicated to the reform and renewal of Orthodoxy and broader Christianity, are listened to with interest in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Germany, Israel, the USA, Canada and other countries of the world.
