The Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria

The Coptic Orthodox Church is one of the most ancient churches in the world. It was established in the first century in Egypt by St. Mark the author of the Gospel that bears his name. It has maintained its Orthodox Christian faith, passing it down through generations, while preserving Apostolic doctrines and patterns of worship. The Church’s spiritual approach emphasizes holiness, Holy Sacraments, and fellowship, and is based in the Holy Scriptures, the Nicene Creed, the teachings of the Church Fathers and the first three ecumenical councils.
