The term “Copt” comes from the Greek word for “Egyptian.” The Coptic Orthodox Church, then, is the Church that was established in Egypt by the Holy Apostle Mark.
“Orthodox” means straight and unwavering. Orthodox Christianity is the authentic and original Christian Faith founded by our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the most pure form of Christianity with nothing added.
The One, Only, Holy, Catholic (universal), and Apostolic Church is the Body of Christ existing in the world. He is the sole Head and His people constitute His Body in the Church.
