Orthodoxy

TSCS is proud to be a mission of the Antiochian Orthodox Church in the Diocese of Mid-America.

The Saint Constantine School is an Orthodox program, but welcomes students from all faith traditions. Every member of our faculty, staff, and leadership is a dedicated and practicing Christian. We come from a variety of Christian traditions and churches, but all affirm belief in creedal Christianity as it has been handed down over the ages.

The Orthodox church has been the home of Christians throughout the Middle East and worldwide for thousands of years, and in this time of ever-increasing persecution we are proud to serve as an extension of that home.

What is Orthodox Christianity?

The Orthodox Church finds its beginnings with Christ and the apostles and continues the unbroken tradition over two millennia. The word “Orthodox” literally means “true teaching” or “right worship.” The Orthodox Church carefully guards the truth against all error to protect its flock and to glorify Christ.

What do Orthodox Christians Believe?

 The Orthodox Christian Faith is centered on the person and work of Jesus Christ, who is both fully divine and fully human. The focus of Orthodox doctrine is on Christ’s incarnation, His life teachings, His passion and life-giving death, His third-Day resurrection and glorious ascension. The Orthodox believe that the Bible is the sacred and divinely inspired record of God’s self-revelation to humanity, and that this revelation has been preserved and passed down in the Holy Tradition of the Church. The Orthodox hold that Christ formed His Church by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, and that the Spirit continues to be alive and active in the Church to this day.
