“Coptic” comes from the Greek word for “Egyptian”.
The Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria originated from the Land of Egypt in the 1st Century.“


“Orthodox” refers to the preservation of the authentic and original Christian faith.

It is what Christ taught, the apostles preached and what the church fathers kept.



“Church” – The Church is the Body of Christ.

He is the sole Head and His people constitute His Body, the Church.

In a world where everyone tries to display the best version of themselves, it’s easy to think of Church as a meeting place for the self-righteous. In reality we are all broken people, and Church is more than just a meeting place – it’s a hospital for sinners and a community built on unconditional love. Just like Jesus was born in a manger, He is waiting to enter our unclean and broken souls to give us the healing only He can provide.


We did not earn a second chance but this is simply God’s gift of life….a second chance. This is why Jesus said “do not weep” and I think He is saying, “why would you weep when you have a second chance?” We should remember everyday the gift of salvation and remember that when we repent, we are no longer dead in sin and God’s compassion on us is the gift of a second chance to arise from the dead which is sin and live with Jesus inside us. 


We must remember that like in our struggles we go to God, that in our triumph we must do the same. It is easy when you are congratulated to forget to return the praise to God. It is also sometimes difficult to always praise God outside church, but we should be joyful in saying it. We bear witness to God in work, school, university, sports and the church we go to. He must increase, but I must decrease. (John 3:30)

“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;” ~ Ephesians 4:11-13
