“Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” – Romans 15:7
Our Reverend Father Daoud Tawadrous welcomes you and your family to Saint Anthony Coptic Orthodox Church in Maitland Florida. We are a church of the Orthodox Christian Faith which was established on the day of Holy Pentecost in the Year 33 AD. Our church is part of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States under the auspices of His Grace Bishop Youssef.
Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to the same worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our church. If you are a member of our church, or are considering joining our community, these web pages will acquaint you with what our church offers. We pray that you will enjoy learning more about the Orthodox Church and our church and we welcome you to join us in worship as we continue our journey of faith.
The Creed of Faith
We believe in one God, God the Father the Pantocrator who created heaven and earth, and all things seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages; Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten not created, of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made; Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy spirit and the Virgin Mary and became Man. And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried. And on the third day He rose from the dead, according to the scriptures, ascended to the heavens; He sits at the right hand of his Father, and He is coming again in His glory to judge the living and the dead, Whose kingdom shall have no end. Yes, we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Life-Giver, Who proceeds from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And in one holy, catholic and apostolic church. We confess one baptism for the remission of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the coming age. Amen.
