Where did the word "Christian" come from? How is the Orthodox Church different from other Christian denominations? What is tradition and what is theology?
There comes a point in every Orthodox teen's life where they start to question their faith. Not necessarily their belief in Christ, but their understanding and appreciation of the deep roots that make up the Ancient Faith of our Orthodox Church. This month, we hope to encourage teens to explore these questions and, more importantly, come to appreciate the deeply held beliefs and roots of our Ancient Faith that stem from Christ's Apostles.
“And I also say to you, that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18
