From the OrthodoxWiki:Style Manual: "Articles on Non-Orthodox Christian religious groups, while necessarily including some general description of those groups, should have as their primary content the relationship and history of that group in relation to the Orthodox Church." Among other things, this could include:
- information which would help for Orthodox Christians (who are not necessarily theologically trained) evaluate a particular group from an Orthodox perspective.
- an account of the history of relations between that religious group and the Orthodox churches (e.g. in the history of the Anglican Church the Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius should be mentioned as well as the interaction of St. Raphael Hawaweeny with the Episcopal Church U.S.A.
Note: Many jurisdictions make a canonical distinction (esp. with regard to baptismal practice) between those groups which acknowledge the authority of Holy Scripture and hold to an essentially Orthodox Christology (generally speaking this would include Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Methodists, free-church Evangelicals, and Charismatics) and those groups which have more in common with ancient heresies than traditional Christianity (Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, etc.).
