Eastern Apostolic Church

World Orthodox Church Directory

 

This directory gives an overview as to how the Eastern Orthodox Church is structured. We do not enter the unholy discussion of who is recognizing whom or who considers whom as canonical.

 

By virtue of the same creed, Canons (church law) and apostolic lineage (Apostolic Succession) all Orthodox are in communion. Whether some may exercise or recognize this right or not is irrelevant or subjective.
