Coptic Orthodox Christianity

Orthodoxy is what Christ taught, the Apostles preached, and the Fathers kept…

What is the Coptic Orthodox Church?


    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 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.


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.
