(Greek: orthodoxos, right believer)

Signifies correct belief or true faith. Since Christ founded only one true Church, faith is really orthodox only when in conformity with the doctrines of that Church. The term is sometimes used however by some who claim to be the true church, but who are nevertheless not in communion with the Church of Rome.
