On one level, the Orthodox Church has a simplicity & elegance that is immediately recognizable. On other levels, it delves into the mystery of God so deeply that men and women focus their whole lives on to be able to grasp those "living waters" that Christ talked about to Nicodemus (John Ch. 3) by embracing all aspects of the living faith of the Orthodox Church.

In its life, the Orthodox Church has striven throughout the centuries to consistently proclaim the teachings of the early Church of the New Testament. It will never divert from this path that Christ has taught us.
