The Eastern Orthodox faith, whether Greek, Russian, Romanian, or a number of other expressions, is one faith, one Church. Orthodoxy is often characterized as those Christians in communion with the Patriarch of Constantinople, rather than with the Pope of Rome. The Holy Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church and the Roman Catholic Church were one Church for the first millenium of Christianity, so there are many similarities. Common to both are most of the points of the Nicene Creed * belief in the Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit * the divinity of Jesus Christ * the Virgin Birth * the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ * the ascension of Christ into heaven * the future return of Christ and the creation of his everlasting kingdom * eternal life пЃ® Similar also are * the structure of church governance (a hierarchy of of various ranks and responsibilities of bishops, a priesthood, and a diaconate) * the change of communion bread and wine into the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ * baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit * liturgical worship forms * the major sacraments (baptism, marriage, ordination, confession, etc.) * male-only clergy * only celibates may become bishops Beliefs have become different in some areas over the years. The chief differences, and those which precipitated the split between Orthodox Christianity and Roman Catholicism, commonly called the Great Schism of 1054: Orthodoxy believes * the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father (Nicene Creed and John 15:26) * the patriarchs of the various churches have no ruling bishop over them all, always having been organized by councils/synods of bishops Roman Catholicism believes * the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son (an addition to the Creed) * the Pope of Rome is the presiding bishop over all Christianity Additional post-schism Catholic dogmas, required for Catholics to believe, but that have never been Orthodox dogmas: * purgatory * infallibility of the Pope * the immaculate conception of Mary There are addition differences in practice that aren't quite dogma: * Married men may become deacons and priests in the Orthodox Church * Orthodox fasting practices are more severe * Orthodoxy uses the Greek Septuagint for Old Testament, and the original Greek for New.
