We are a Coptic Orthodox Church located in Peoria, Arizona, serving the community and those in need to show God’s love to others.
Our mission is to seek to live the authentic living tradition of the Orthodox Church of Alexandria faith by:
1. Being faithful to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ to “ make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matt. 28:19)
2. Preaching and teaching the Gospel to the local community through outreach, catechesis, adult education, and community service
3. Worshiping in the English language
4. Being an open multi-cultured community where people of all ethnic backgrounds can feel welcome and at home
5. Witnessing to the truth of the Gospel by living the life of sanctification in the power of the Holy Spirit to bring hope to an increasingly faithless generation.
This is acheived by our core values of faithfulness to Holy Scripture as recognized by the Orthodox Church, devotion to the Coptic Orthodox Church and Her Hierarchy, and steadfastness to the parish priest who is obedient to Holy Scripture, the Coptic Orthodox Church and Her Hierarchy
