Founded on the Day of Holy Pentecost, 50 days after the Holy Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, Orthodox Christianity dates back to approximately 33 AD. Orthodox Christianity differs from Western Christianity in a number of ways: We are Catholic, but not Roman. We are Orthodox, but not Jewish. We are not Protestant, but the Bible came from us. We are not denominational, but pre-denominational. Orthodox Christianity is the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church as practiced by the early Christians.

Orthodox churches practice a rich liturgical life and faithfulness to the apostolic tradition. Orthodox Christians believe that their Church has preserved the tradition and continuity of the ancient Church in its fullness, as opposed to other Christian denominations which have departed from the common tradition of the Church of the first ten centuries. Today Orthodox Church numbers approximately 300 million Christians who follow the faith and practices that were defined by the first seven ecumenical councils. The word orthodox literally means "right belief and right glory" and has traditionally been used to designate communities, or individuals, who preserved the true faith as opposed to those who were declared heretical.
