Does Salvation Come From Faith, Works or Grace?

Does Salvation Come From Faith, Works or Grace?


Do you want to be in heaven?  Why wait?  Fr. Theodore Stylianopoulos, Professor of New Testament (emeritus)  at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology  and Fr. Chris speak about salvation and how we can experience heaven here on earth.  Is it by faith or by works?  Listen to this enlightening conversation on what salvation is, according to the Orthodox faith, when  grace in added to the equation.

But first, listen as Fr. Chris speaks with architect Steven Papadatos, of Papadatos Partnership, LLP, about his firm and their work on Orthodox churches around the world.  Steven designed and built many Orthodox Churches in America, as well as a church in Tirana, Albania.

Paired with architecture, iconography in a church is important to worship.  In this program, we also highlight a short clip from the documentary, The Art of Belief.
