Though our site is free to our readers—and advertisement-free, unlike most sites—it is not free to produce. This is your opportunity to help Patristic Faith continue to grow and bring the message of Orthodoxy to readers throughout the world.
Will you join us in this important ministry by making a contribution today?
In an era when traditional Christians face many challenges from the modern world that threaten their faith, Patristic Faith presents a thoughtful educational and apologetic ministry to combat the dangers of various secular ideas and philosophies destructive and contrary to the Orthodox Faith. Here we offer reasoned and reflective essays and videos on issues relating to theology, philosophy, culture, apologetics, ethics, and asceticism, written by some of the best Orthodox minds, including clergy and laity. In such perilous times, we at Patristic Faith strive to preserve the traditions and faith of the Church Fathers. We are committed to providing an evangelizing and educational ministry that equips Christians with the necessary tools to actively live out the faith of the Apostles, the faith of the fathers, the faith of the Orthodox, the faith that established the universe.
