Orthodox Christianity

“I believe in one holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.” (from the Nicene Creed)

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Eastern Orthodox Church is organically the same congregation (or ecclesia) which was born at the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem on Pentecost, a direct continuation from the Apostles by laying on of hands from each generation of priests to the next. The Orthodox Christian recognizes the rich Christian heritage and proclaims that he belongs to this Church, which corresponds to the Church of the Apostles as does a grown-up person correspond to a picture taken of him as a child.”
— From This Faith We Hold by Archbishop Paul of Finland
