Growing in Faith

ROBC leadership members formed together with the intent to offer a biblical emphasis in all areas of education and living. They are committed to creating an environment that enables people to love, respect and understand what it means to be a Christian. The ideas and goals behind ROBC are driven by individuals passionate about preserving the Old Believer faith and helping the community thrive in God’s image. ROBC is a sweeping movement to answer God’s call for justice in this fragmented world, particularly in the areas of protecting religion, spiritual teachings and care for each other.

Make a Difference

God designed the Christian lifestyle to be one of service and giving. Just as Christ came to serve us by pouring out His life on the cross for our salvation, we are also called to follow His example of serving by pouring out our lives for the good of others. Your donation positively impacts our community and helps provide the resources needed to support the Old Believer faith. Any contributions to the ROBC are valued and greatly appreciated. We are very thankful for each one of you who support our movement.

Our History

We are Christians whose faith and traditions have stood unchanged since the early 1600s. Our ancestors lived in the farmlands of Russia until the Russian Revolution of 1917. At that time, they were faced with making a choice: Faith or Freedom?

They Chose Faith

That choice lead to government persecution. Our ancestors found themselves fleeing Russia in the early 1900s seeking a country where they could pray in peace. For a time some found peace in asian countries like Turkey, Kazakhstan, or China. Others settled in Brazil, Bolivia, and Argentina.

Then, in the late 1900s they heard of a great nation. One built on liberty that promised their Freedom of Religion would never be tampered with. The land that fulfilled their dream of a safer future for their children, where they no longer had to live in fear of religious persecution. That land was called America.

With the help of the Molokhani, Red Cross, and World Council of Churches, we settled in Oregon — and later Alaska, Washington, and Minnesota. Now, in 2020, the Russian Old Believer Community is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the beliefs and traditions that our ancestors sacrificed so much to protect as we give back to the community that helped us not so long ago.
