Foundations of Faith
Holy Scripture 
It is the inspired word of God and the written record of His revelation. Holy Scripture is the product of Holy Tradition.
- Old Testament: relates the manner in which God prepared the world for the coming of His Son, Jesus Christ.
- New Testament: completes God's revelation by proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord, God, and Savior.
Holy Tradition 
That which is passed on in the Church, from the time of Jesus Christ to the present is known as Holy Tradition. Holy Tradition 
is the ongoing life of God's people
consists of that which is essential to God's revelation and necessary for our salvation
is the living link by which Orthodox Christians of all ages are united together in a common faith, life, and experience
