Coptic Orthodox Faith
The Coptic Church believes in One God. The Bible and personal experiences teach us that God has three hypostasis‐ Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. No Hypostases is higher than the other, yet all exist as One, just as the Sun is a sphere, emits heat and begets light.
A mystery (aka a Sacrament) is an invisible grace (by the Holy Spirit‐God Himself) given through a visible (material) means. The mysteries can only be administered by a canonical priest. God Himself ordained the first priests and bishops when the Holy Spirit was given to the Apostles, conferring authority to administer mysteries and to ordain others to do so after them.read more
