Where Else to Look

So many resources are available on the internet today, it can be overwhelming — especially if the sources seem to contradict each other, or offer ideas based more on opinion than fact.  And, honestly, some claim to be Orthodox but offer some pretty strange ideas that aren't truly Orthodox.


Here are nine trustworthy websites:

  1. Ancient Faith Ministries

  2. Orthodox Christian Network (OCN)

  3. Greek Orthoox Archdiocese (GOARCH)

  4. Antiochian Archdiocese
    Antioch was one of the earliest centers of Christianity.  According to Acts 11:26, "They were first called Christians in Antioch."

  5. Orthodox Church of America (OCA)

  6. International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC)

  7. Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC)

  8. Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America

  9. OrthodoxWiki
    Although OrthodoxWiki is open source, it is monitored and generally reliable. 

Additionally, there are many trustworthy links on the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops website. Here is their resource page.

Fr. Mark is also available if you have questions. As a scientist and former atheist/agnostic, he loves challenging questions. Please feel free to call him at 717-919-3382 or send him an email through the contact form.

We'd also love for you to visit anytime. Experiencing Orthodoxy is the best way to learn. As the Apostle Philip said to Nathaniel under the fig tree in John 1:45-46, "Come and See." Everyone is welcome to visit and join. If you have been seeking the Original Christianity, you belong here.

Prayer Books & Icons

St. Paul said to pray without ceasing. So, we pray both together and in private. Many Orthodox say their evening prayers by candlelight at home. It is a beautiful and peaceful way to end the day.
