The Beatitudes, or the blessings, pronounced by our Lord Jesus Christ upon His faithful followers constitute the opening salvo in our Savior’s most famous teaching: The Sermon on the Mount. In these eight lectures each beatitude, one by one, is unveiled revealing the universal character of an authentic Christian. Those who inculcate these sacred dispositions manifest the face of Jesus Christ to the world. By incarnating the qualities of Jesus Christ our Savior, that is, poverty of spirit, mourning, gentleness, hunger and thirst for righteousness, mercy, purity of heart, peacemaking, and the joyful acceptance of persecution - believers become the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We hope you will be greatly challenged and inspired by these lessons on authentic Christian character, the kind of character that manifests the presence of the Kingdom of God on the earth.

"Before I joined the Point Loma Nazarene School, I had been searching for an Orthodox college that offers a masters program, particularly in business and law. Unfortunately, I couldn't find one. So, i joined the PLNU and was able to meet a number of Chrisitans from all kinds of denominations. The best part was that when I met my classmate, who happens to be an Orthodox Christian, he told me about Ancient Faith Radio, Project Mexico, and other organizations that are related to the Orthodox faith. AFR has been a blessing to me and my father. We were listening to the Eternal Word Television Network, a Catholic station, but now my father and I spend more time listening to Ancient Faith Radio. The podcasts and the music have also been a blessing to my Ethiopian Orthodox friends and relatives! Thank you for helping bring us closer to the almighty God through Orthodox Christian teachings. May the good Lord bless you!"
