Hello! The Orthodox branch of our faith is one I probably know the least about and I’m curious about something. The Roman Catholic Church’s position is that to be a true member of the One True Church and all of it’s fullness, one would need to become a member of the RCC. (If I’m mistaken, please do correct me.)
What is the Orthodox position for those protestants like me? Do they view protestant belief as valid if it meets certain criteria? Or, would the idea be to become Orthodox? If Orthodox churches tend to follow certain cultural or ethnic lines, and can trace themselves back to certain areas of the world, and Bishops presiding over those areas, what is a protestant such as me to do? How would I ever pick which Orthodox church to join?
