The Orthodox Church is the historical Church founded by Jesus Christ and her early history is described in the New Testament.
The word "Orthodox" means "correct teaching" or "correct belief". By the grace of the Holy Spirit received during the Pentecost (Acts 2:1-31) the Apostles established the Church throughout the Ancient World. By means of Apostolic Succession the correct teachings and way of life as taught by Jesus Christ Himself have been passed down and practiced by the Orthodox Church to this very day.
Orthodoxy is not just a teaching it's also a way of life.
Our Creed: The Symbol of Faith
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of Light; True God of True God; begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by Whom all things were made;
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man.
And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried.
And the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures;
And ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father;
And He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; Whose Kingdom shall have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; Who spoke by the prophets.
In one Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins.
I look for the resurrection of the dead;
And the life of the world to come. Amen.
