The OCA is a member of the World Council of Churches and the Conference of European Churches. It is also a founding member of the Pan-Orthodox Council of Churches.

The OCA is governed by a Holy Synod, which is composed of the bishops of the church. The Holy Synod meets regularly to make decisions about the church’s life and work.

  • Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The seven sacraments are essential for Christian life and worship.
  • The church is the Body of Christ, and all Christians are called to be members of the church.
