What is Orthodox Christianity?

Come and see the Church of Christ!

An Introduction

Orthodoxy is as old as the Church itself, because it is the Church. Orthodox Christianity traces its lineage to the original apostles and disciples. Their guidance and their wisdom are an integral part of our life in the Church today.

While it is true that we have bishops, archbishops, metropolitans and patriarchs, there is only one true head of our church: Jesus Christ. He is our head, our savior, our respite and our joy, our only way into the kingdom of heaven. Everything else is but a lens or a glass used to behold Him.

It is not easy to distill 2000-plus years of theology, hymnology, prayer, hagiography, martyrdom, mystagogy, liturgy, and practical living into a succinct and clearly defined outline. The only way to truly understand the Orthodox Faith is to be Orthodox. It must be lived; it cannot be "intellectually apprehended." Still, we have some resources for you to begin your journey towards Orthodoxy below.

Print resources are available at our bookstore.
