The vision of this convention

From the earliest days of her existence, the Church of Christ has been concerned that her children should stand firm in the TRUTH of the FAITH which was once and for all delivered to the saints. (Jude 3, 3 John 5:4, 1 Peter 5:12) It is TRUTH that dispels all error and confusion and guides the believer to live a LIFE of FAITH pleasing to God.  This true path of FAITH, meticulously preserved by generations past, has been called the straight, right faith – that is the Orthodox Faith.  And it is no surprise to any of us that the Orthodox FAITH was paid for by the blood of the martyrs, the erudition of the Fathers and the faithful observance of ordinary people.
 
In this convention, we hope to gain a deeper  understanding of the TRUTHS of our FAITH so that we may live the LIFE of abundance and fullness which God desires for all (John 10:10). It is our goal to harmoniously fuse the TRUTH and FAITH with our daily LIFE  in order to witness to our families, friends, and the world. (Matthew 28:19)
 
Please join us as we delve into certain aspects of the FAITH with our most blessed and God-inspired Bishops who have dedicated their lives to serving the Coptic Orthodox Church.  We invite you to come and hear the words of these blessed fathers who will lead us to a deeper understanding of the Coptic Orthodox Faith, in hopes that we are enabled to live the fullness of the FAITH as we journey towards the Kingdom of Heaven.
