With approximately 220 million baptized members, the Eastern Orthodox Church, also known as the Orthodox Church, is the second-largest Christian church, operating as a communion of autocephalous congregations, each governed by its bishops and adherents in local synods. Eastern Orthodox theology is based on holy tradition, which incorporates the dogmatic decrees of the seven ecumenical councils, the Scriptures, and the teaching of the Church Fathers. It is one of the world’s oldest surviving religious institutions. The church teaches that it is the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church founded by Jesus Christ in his Great Commission and that its bishops are Christ’s apostles’ successors.

Most orthodox churches in Ghana arose as a result of events that occurred between 1884 and 1982. Eastern Orthodox Christianity believers and religious communities in Ghana are referred to as Eastern Orthodox Christians. The Eastern Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria and all of Africa has ecclesiastical jurisdiction over the majority of Eastern Orthodox Christians in Ghana.
