The Bible

The Orthodox believe that the Bible is the recorded history of God's relationship to man in human history, and man's response to God. The Orthodox also believe that the Bible was written by persons inspired by God and that it is the word of God.

The Orthodox recognize the Old Testament, New Testament and the Deuterocanonical books, as a source of her doctrine. The worship services and prayers are based on the Holy Scriptures. In fact, there is not a worship service in the Church that does not read an excerpt from the Bible. Readings from both/either the Old and New Testament are done in each service. Orthodox Christians are encouraged to read and study the Bible daily. However, interpreting the Bible is not left to the individual but to the Church.
