About the Orthodox Church in America

The Orthodox Church is the Church which was existed continuously in the Middle East and Greece from the time of the Apostles. It is the faith of the majority of Christians in the Middle East, Greece, Russia, Romania, Serbia, Albania, Ukraine, Georgia, and Bulgaria. With the exception of Rome, the local Churches mentioned in the New Testament which have existed continuously to the present time, such as Corinth, Thessaloniki, Damascus, etc. are Orthodox. The Orthodox Church in America is the continuation of the first Orthodox Mission to North America, begun in Alaska in 1794 by St. Herman and other Russian monks.

The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational - it is pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost over 2000 years ago.
