The Greek word Orthodox is derived from two words: Orthros,right or true; and Doxa, praise or worship. This word, true-worship, was coined in ancient times to define the true faith of the Church against heresies. Today, over 250 million faithful all over the world constitute the “One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church’ (from the Nicene Creed). They all pride Orthodoxy as the true faith of the Apostles.
