Who We Are

 

"Stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught whether by word or our  epistle"
(2Th 2:15)

 

Simply put, the Orthodox Church is the original ancient Christian faith. It is the only Holy Catholic (concerning all of Christendom) and Apostolic Church as it was handed down to us from Christ, to the apostles and from the apostles to us. The apostle Paul tells us that the doctrines taught by Christ and His disciples are to be safeguarded by the "Church, the pillar and support of the truth"(1Ti 3:15). In the first 1,000 years all of Christianity was Orthodox. The Orthodox Church went through seven ecumenical councils that firmly established the foundation of the true Christian Church.
