    MYSTAGOGY: The Orthodox Celebration of Christmas

    Eastern Orthodoxy is sometimes referred to as the "Ancient Faith." The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It’s orthodox, but not Jewish. It’s catholic, but not Roman. It isn’t non-denominational – it’s pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the day of Pentecost over 2000 years ago.
