What is the Coptic Orthodox Church?

  • COPTIC

    The term “Copt” comes from the Greek word for “Egyptian.” The Coptic Orthodox Church, then, is the Church that was established in Egypt by the Holy Apostle Mark.

  • ORTHODOX

    Orthodox Christianity is the authentic and original Christian Faith founded by our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the most pure form of Christianity with nothing added.

CHURCH

The One, Only, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church is the Body of Christ existing in the world. He is the sole Head and His people constitute His Body in the Church. Orthodox Christians believe that the Church is undivided, holy, catholic (universal), and sanctified for the work of preaching the Holy Gospel throughout the world and baptizing the nations.
