  • The Oriental Orthodox Church is the ancient Christian Church, established by Jesus Christ Himself, in the year ~33 AD (Mt. 16:18). It is composed of the Coptic, Syriac, Armenian, Ethiopian, Eritrean, and Indian Orthodox Churches. Today, Orthodox Christian parishes can be found in all areas of the world, β€œfrom the East to the West” (Mal. 1:11).

    The word, β€œOriental,” from the Latin word, β€œorientalis,” meaning “Eastern,” is used to signify the historical truth that the Orthodox Church is made up of, and is the never-ceasing continuation of, the many patriarchates which were established in the Eastern regions of the world, by, and during the days of, the Apostles.
