An Ancient Christian Church. It is one of the most ancient Churches in the world, having been founded by Saint Mark the Apostle, the writer of the second gospel, in the first Century. The word ‘Coptic’ comes from the ancient Egyptian word ‘hekaptah’
We believe in one God, God the Father the Pantocrator who created heaven and earth, and all things seen and unseen.
