The Christian life is life in the Lord Jesus Christ. The believer puts on Christ and lives through Him. He who falls after Baptism loses this grace;  when rising up from this fall and returning to  the Lord, he has become worthy of it again, and this he does through Holy Communion.  He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, dwelleth in Me, and I in him, says the Lord  (Jn. 6:56). The Path to Salvation by Saint Theophan 




The Orthodox Church

The Mission of the Orthodox Church:
To proclaim and live the Orthodox Christian Faith in its fullness as faithful members of the Body of Christ in the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church

As the Orthodox Christian Church:
  • We are Catholic, but not Roman.
  • We are Apostolic, but not Protestant.
  • We are Orthodox, but not Jewish.
The Orthodox Church isn’t "non-denominational" – it is pre-denominational, existing 1,500 years before any denominations.

What we believe
The Orthodox Church has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost 2000 years ago.


The New Testament Church
 We are the Church in the Bible and the Church that established the New Testament as Scripture.




The leadership of the Orthodox Church since the 20th Century.
St Tikhon, the Patriarch of Moscow Metropolitan Anthony Khrapovitsky Metropolitan Anastassy St. Philaret the new Confessor, Metropolitan of New York St. Chrysostom the New Confessor, the Metropolitan of Florina Archbishop Akakios of Athens
Archbishop Auxentius of Athens Bishop Petros of New York Archbishop Chrysostom II of Athens Archbishop Kallinikos of Athens Metropolitan Paul of America Metropolitan Demetrios of America

It is said a picture is worth a thousand words, then clearly these pictures are worth thousands. The twelve photos present the leaders of the Orthodox Church since the 20th century, including the Bishops of America. By these photos you will understand our Orthodox ecclesiology, which is, according to St. Athanasius:

Orthodoxy is what Christ taught, the Apostles preached, and the Fathers kept.


 We are greatly indebted to the confession of Sts. Tikhon, Philaret of New York, as well as the staunch defense of the faith by such luminaries as Metropolitans Anthony Khrapovitsky, Anastassy, and St. Chrysostom, the New Confessor of Florina. The other photos present our spiritual pedigree and Apstolic Succession in a simplified manner.
