Orthodox Christianity

The first Christian communities began in the lands near the Mediterranean Sea, over 2,000 years ago. In these Eastern cities, the fundamentals of our Faith were proclaimed at the Seven Ecumenical Councils. The Greek Orthodox Church embodies and expresses the rich spiritual treasures of Eastern Christian beliefs. One definition of the word ‘Orthodox’ is “true praise.” To bless, praise, and glorify God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is the fundamental purpose of the Church. All of her activities, even her doctrinal formulations, are directed toward this goal.
