“Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.” (Colossians 1:28)
Our mission is for: “…all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1Timothy 2:4). Our goal is to call everyone to know Christ who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Our goal is also to present Christ to everyone; both non-Christians and those who are Christian by name only. We strive to preach the teachings of Christ and eternal life. These are our ultimate goals as long as we are living on earth. We offer our love and acceptance to everyone, whilst holding fast onto our faith, dogma and the Christian Orthodox teachings. We strive to win everyone through direct spiritual services and indirect services such as medical missions, fun activities and developmental and educational services in the name of the Coptic Orthodox Church.
We are working on establishing formal training programs for servants and local priests to lead and educate their congregation about the Orthodox faith in their areas, under the guidance and auspices of the Coptic Orthodox Church.
How did St. Paul's Evangelistic Service Begin?
Also in 2009, Father Daoud Lamie established St. Paul’s evangelical service at St. Mark’s Church in Heliopolis, Cairo. He began a weekly English meeting, with a goal to train servants for evangelical ministry, capable of spreading Christ’s teachings in different languages and ways to accommodate the nations’ different cultures.
Ever since, multiple services have begun in different countries, as well as the training of consecrated servants to reside and serve in these countries on a long term basis.
Also in 2013 the Coptic Orthodox Church initiated many conferences on a regular basis to train and qualify servants for the ministry. There were also many conferences held for monks who desired to participate in this service, after which, many traveled to evangelize and serve in different countries.
The Fruits of the Service until 2021 through the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ:
– Evangelical ministry in 36 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe.
– More than 150 medical service trips to Africa and Asia.
– Consecration of many priests, monks and resident servants in the countries of service.
– The participation of over 500 Egyptian doctors from all over the world in medical services in different countries.
– The participation of over 1500 volunteer servants in missionary trips to African, Asian and European countries.
The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty and be confirmed …
“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
