Sacraments

The Orthodox Church derives her teaching from two sources: the Holy Scriptures and the Sacred Tradition. These two sources, according to the Orthodox conviction, are of equal value and they complete each other.

A sacrament is a visible means to achieve invisible grace. We recognize seven sacraments: Baptism, Chrism or Confirmation, Holy Eucharist, Confession, Ordination, Marriage, and Holy Unction.
