Frequently question asked?

Who can join the Orthodox Church?

The Kingdom of God is for everyone! Although the Coptic Church was founded in, and has its home, in Egypt, today there are thousands of Orthodox churches all over the world, with millions of believers from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We believe that all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues should stand together to worship before the Lord as we see in Revelation 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,(Revelation 7:9)

What is the Coptic Orthodox Church’s role in mission?

The Coptic Orthodox Church is known historically for its contribution in relieving poverty, sickness, suffering of people spiritually and physically. The ancient fathers leave rich heritage in the field of literature, spiritually and wisdom, helping to strengthen the faith of African people very much.

Why should I attend church?

Christ never intended for any of His followers to be alone, but rather that they should exist and worship in community with one another forming one body – the church. (Acts 2 & Ephesians 4). We believe in the church we find life, love, and liberty from sin. The church is a family and a place not to be judged for our sins but to be saved from our sins. God is love and the church should continue to spread His love to all people.

What is an Orthodox service like?

His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, enthroned by the Coptic Orthodox Church. The main worship service in the Orthodox Church is the Divine Liturgy celebrating the Eucharist. The liturgy is the story of humanity’s redemption. It is told regularly in order to remind believers of Christ’s work to reconcile the world to God, so that all may be led to repentance as they partake of His body and blood. The most commonly used liturgy in the Coptic Church was written by St. Basil the Great in the 4th century. The liturgy is usually celebrated on Sunday (the Lord’s day), but may also be celebrated on any other day of the week. In addition to the Divine Liturgy, the church holds Bible studies, youth and family meetings, Sunday school classes, fellowship and spiritual conferences for all ages.

What is the Coptic Orthodox Church?

The Coptic Orthodox is the oldest church in the world. It was founded by St. Mark the Evangelist, author of the second gospel in Alexandria, Egypt in the year 61 A.D. The word “Copt” means Egyptian. Copts are the native Christians of Egypt and the direct descendants of the ancient Egyptians who were converted to Christianity by St. Mark.
