The Orthodox Church: An Introduction
The Eastern Orthodox Church, is the predominant Christian faith of Greece, Romania, Moldova, Cyprus, Georgia and the Slavic countries of Russia, Belarus, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Ukraine. It is the One, Holy, Catholic (universal) and Apostolic Church established by Our Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles approximately 2,000 years ago. Orthodoxy is the second largest Christian communion in the world, with an estimated 300 million faithful.
In this section of the website, our goal is to educate anyone who might be untaught or curious about Orthodoxy. Our faith is uncommon in the west but Our God is ever present and a testament to that is the various denominations of Christianity that exist today both here in America and abroad. What we share in common with the other mainline Christian faiths is the belief in the Holy Trinity. Explaining the Orthodox Church completely is impossible, as is explaining Her Mysteries. We say in humility that when Christians are taken into the Orthodox Church, they are not converting; rather they are coming home.
