"The History of the Coptic Church: From St. Mark to St. Athanasius"
The Coptic Church was established in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ by St. Mark the Evangelist in the city of Alexandria around 43 A.D. The church adheres to the Nicene Creed.
St. Athanasius (296-373 A.D.), the twentieth Pope of the Coptic Church, effectively defended the Doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ's Divinity at the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. His affirmation of the doctrine earned him the title "Father of Orthodoxy" and St. Athanasius "the Apostolic".
The term "Coptic" is derived from the Greek "Aigyptos" meaning "Egyptian".
The Coptic Orthodox Church believes in the Holy Trinity: God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit and that they are equal to each other in one unity. We also believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only Savior of the world
