We are not Jewish, but we are Orthodox
Orthodoxy means “right teaching.” Together with orthopraxis “right practice,” the Orthodox Church continues today as it has since the Day of Pentecost.
We're not Roman, but we are Catholic
The Nicene Creed says “I believe in One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.” Catholic means Universal. On any given Sunday or Feast Day, you could walk into any Orthodox Church, anywhere in the world, and participate in the same Divine Liturgy, regardless of location, ethnicity or language.
We're not Protestant, but we wrote the Bible
The Early Church formalized what we call the Bible today in AD 397 at a regional council called the Third Council of Carthage. It was the Orthodox Bishops who came together, guided by the Holy Spirit, and gave us our Bible.
We're not Denominational, we're Pre-Denominational
There are no denominations within the Orthodox Church. We are all one Church and have been since the Apostles were given the commission to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
