About the Coptic Orthodox Church

The Coptic Orthodox Church is the Orthodox Church of Egypt. Coptic simply means Egyptian. The Coptic Orthodox Church was founded by St. Mark the Evangelist when he came to the lands of Egypt in the year 42 A.D. St. Mark, author of the gospel that bears his name preached the good news to those in Egypt bringing them “out of darkness into the true light”

One Holy Catholic

One Body of Christ | Sanctified by Christ | Universal in Christ


That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me

John 17:21-23


For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.

Ephesians 5:30


 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit

Matthew 28:19

Apostolic & Orthodox

The church is built on the foundation of the apostles and Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone

Orthodoxy is what Christ taught, the disciples preached, and the fathers kept

 St. Athanasius the Apostolic


The Coptic Orthodox Church is sacramental. We receive adoption through baptism in which we can call God, Abba, Father (Romans 8:15). We receive restoration in confession and repentance, and unite with Christ at the altar through the real presence of His Body and Blood in the Eucharist.
