What is the Orthodox Christian Church

“Orthodox” describes that Church that understands itself to be the living continuity of the faith and life established by Jesus Christ, given to His apostles, described in the Bible, and practiced and passed on by those Christians associated with the ancient centers and earliest centuries of Christian history.

More ancient than Protestantism (16th century) and Roman Catholicism (11th century), this faith “once and for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3) is expressed as a life of constant remembrance of God, of the spiritual and physical pursuit of holiness, and in a worship of God that is biblical, liturgical, musical, vibrant, focused not on “self” but on Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Today, approximately 300 million Christians worldwide belong to the Orthodox Christian Church.
