The Orthodox faith originates with Christ Jesus and His Church which he gave to His apostles who then evangelized and taught the faith to the potential believers by word of mouth (Fro christ's mouth to their ears; from their mouth to the ears of the hearers; from their mouths to the greater glory of God. 33 AD, Pentecost, is generally acknowledged as the official birth of His Church. From this point on, the faith was evangelized, the liturgical practice was developed and sacramental life as given by Jesus Christ was held dear and administered to and for the baptized in the churches established by His disciples.
All praise and glory be to Jesus Christ!
The Orthodox Faith was established in Palestine, Syria, Mesopotamia, Italy, Africa, Cappadocia, Greece, northward to the Balkans; Serbia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, and then Russia. Georgia was already Christian. It is also in the west of France, Germany and England, Eastern Europe, Poland, Romania, and the Carpathian region. It still flourishes almost worldwide, including China, South America, and America.
