The Head of the Orthodox Christian Church is our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ
For more, see the Bible There is no earthly head of the Orthodox Church. All bishops are equal, sharing the same ministerial grace and forming a brotherhood to which each is accountable. The unity of the Church is manifested in common Faith and communion in the Sacraments and no one but Christ Himself is the real Head of the Church.
