What is the Orthodox Church?

The Eastern Orthodox Christian Church has existed continuously from the time of Pentecost. It is the faith of the majority of Christians in the Middle East, Greece, the Balkan States, and the Russian Federation.

Until the 11th century, the Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church considered themselves to be “one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.” Today, the Orthodox Church continues to uphold and proclaim the fullness of the Christian faith as the Apostles preached it from the beginning.

The Orthodox Church in America site has information on its teachings, the history of the Orthodox Church and many helpful resources.

Ancient Faith Ministries offers a great wealth of online audio and video programming as well as books and booklets for children and adults.
