His Grace Bishop Daniel

Coptic Orthodox Church of Australia, Sydney and Affiliated Regions

 

"The Coptic Orthodox Church Diocese of Sydney & Affiliated Regions affirms its faith in one God and Father of Our Lord, God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

We believe in the triune God: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe that God created man and woman equally in God’s image and human mankind was created (Genesis 1:26 -27).

We believe that Jesus Christ was Incarnated of the Virgin St Mary and of the Holy Spirit, and became man except for sin, for the sake of humanity, in order to show us a model of life in Godliness and Holiness by being His disciples for the Kingdom of Heaven.

We believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross and resurrected on the third day and ascended to the Heavens on the 40th day and will return to judge the living and the dead.

We believe that Jesus Christ gave us the commandment of “love”, “to love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34).

We believe all men and women are born equal and hence, all men and women have the right to live in peace, harmony, without prejudice of any kind, without harm of any abuse, and of any kind of violence to all human beings.                                                       

We believe that we will work in solidarity to eliminate slavery of all kind for the benefit of mankind."
