Orthodox Christianity

 

The main faith in Greece is Christian, but Christianity is practised (done) a little differently in Greece from how it is practised in the UK.

 

The Greek Church is called the Orthodox Church. The word 'Orthodox' takes its meaning from the Greek words orthos ('right') and doxa ('belief'). Hence the word Orthodox means correct belief or right thinking.

 

The Orthodox Church can be traced back to the first Church started by Jesus’ disciples in Jerusalem. Many Orthodox Christians believe that this gives them greater authority than other types of Christians.

 

Greek church buildings look a little different from British church buildings:

Although the Greek Orthodox Church has a different name – is has the same God, follows Jesus, believes in the Holy Spirit, and reads the same Bible as Christians do throughout the world. In fact, most of the New Testament in the Bible was actually originally written in Greek, and have since been translated into many other languages.
