Evangelicals coming to the Orthodox faith
  • Hi
    I thought you'd be interested to see this video:


    can someone tell me what our relationship is with the Antioch Orthodox Church? Are they EO?

    Have you noticed the same conversions in your church in the USA?

    Thanks
  • Yes. The Antiochian Orthodox Church is the Eastern Orthodox Patriarchate in Syria. Not to be confused with the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate, the Oriental Orthodox branch, whose patriarch is Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas and with whom we are in full communion.

  • Hi, Zoxa.  As Ramez has pointed out, the Antiochian Orthodox Church in question here is the EO branch.  In terms of the subject of the video, stated briefly, this concerns a group of former Evangelical Protestants who had figured out that Orthodoxy was the original and true Church, but instead of seeking out a canonical Orthodox bishop, they at first created their own pseudo-Orthodox group which retained several bizarre Evangelical/Charismatic practices (what is falsely identified as "tongues", etc.).  Eventually, glory to God, they became fully Orthodox and entered a canonical EO group, abandoning their former practices and embracing Orthodoxy.
