The Coptic Orthodox Church

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 Coptic Orthodox Church worships the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Oneness of Nature. We believe in One God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three equal Co-Essential and Co-Indwelling Hypostasis (Persons). The Blessed and Holy Trinity is our One God. We Believe that Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten of the Father and Who is One with Him in Essence is the only Savior of the world

Our Church

Saint Mary Coptic Orthodox Church is located in Roswell, Georgia; a church in the Diocese of the Southern United States, under the guidance of His Eminence Metropolitan Youssef and served by Father Eleia Eskander and Father Elisha Soliman. 

Our Church is both ancient and new. Ancient in that it is apostolic, founded by St. Mark the Evangelist traditionally practicing the apostolic faith without deviation. The church is new through the living Messiah whose Spirit renews her youth (Ps. 103:5).

The Coptic Church is rich with evangelistic and ascetic life, genuine patriotic inheritance, heavenly worship, spiritual rituals, effective and living hymns, beautiful icons, etc. The church attracts the heart towards heaven without ignoring actual daily life. We can say that it is an apostolic, contemporary church that carries life and thought to the contemporary man without deviation.

The Church is well known for its numerous saints: ascetics, clergymen and laymen. The church offered many saints throughout ages and is still offering the same today. Leading a sanctified life in communion with God comes first.
