From a historical point of view, the Orthodox Church is the first Christian Church. The bishops of the Orthodox Church trace their lineage back to the Apostles. And the faith preserved within the Orthodox Church is in direct continuity with the original apostolic faith. Within this Church, the authentic life in Christ is culminated. The path to salvation is preserved and passed on in all its fullness. Please go to one of the sections below for more information about our history, teachings and traditions.
