About Us

We are part of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, a member of the Oriental Orthodox Church, founded by St. Mark the Apostle in the 1st Century.

Our church is located in Freehold, NJ and is part of the Archdiocese of North America under the auspices of the Patriarch of Alexandria.

Our mission is to create a safe haven for members to build a true and everlasting relationship with God, through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, by the gift of the Holy Spirit. We are called to love everyone unconditionally and to renew lives through the teaching, discipleship, worship, community, and service, as experienced in the Apostolic tradition.

Our core values are:

  • Hospitality: We believe the church is a spiritual hospital where people come to experience the healing work of our Great Physician, Jesus Christ.

  • Transparency - We believe transparency is essential for personal and communal growth. Whether it is in ministry decision-making, the financial health of the church, or in one's spiritual condition, transparency creates an environment where trust is nourished and accountable is valued.

  • Purposeful Giving - We believe God has called us as individual members in the Body of Christ and as a community at-large to be purposeful about giving of ourselves.

  • Integrity - We believe in a community who lives in integrity. When we do what we say we are going to do, this honors God and builds trust amongst our brothers in sisters in Jesus Christ.
