Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.  (Proverbs 22:6)

Our Lord Jesus Christ tells us in Holy Scripture, "I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6). Our salvation, therefore, depends on whether we chose to follow the Lord, or the ways of the Evil One. 

The mission of the Church, the Bride of Christ, is to foster our spiritual growth in the Lord. The ultimate goal of the Church is theosis, deification. In every aspect of the life of the Church we are encouraged to follow the straight and narrow road, the Path of Holiness. In today's world, more than ever, as Orthodox Christians we need to draw deeply from the waters of godliness which are found in the Church. The spiritual life of the church provides us with a continual source of catechesis (guidance or instruction), in leading a godly life.

The mission of the Apostolate for Christian Education  and  this web page is to provide all who truly wish to teach and learn about our precious Orthodox Faith some helpful resources.
