St John Coptic Orthodox Church
Welcome to St. John Coptic Orthodox Church
St. John Coptic Orthodox Church was founded in 1988 by a group of Copts who moved eastward from Los Angeles into the San Gabriel Valley area. Services were held in a rented church and a school in West Covina until the present parcel of land was purchased in 1990.
Through the grace of God in 2004, the congregation built a large church in the modern Coptic style. His Holiness Pope Shenouda III (the 117th Pope of Alexandria) consecrated the church that same year.
We believe that it is in the living body of Christ – which is the Church – that true healing of the whole person can be realized. As our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ healed humanity of the effects of sin, we seek to be a link to the healing work of Christ by continuing the ministry He entrusted to His disciples. We welcome each person with loving hospitality.
