Ecumenical Councils

 

* Bishops all over the world meet together to deal with faith and pastoral problems.

* Councils that are admitted by our church are:

1- Council of Nicea: (325 A.D.) that dealt with Arius who denied Christ's divinity.

2- Council of Constantinople: (381 A.D.) because of Machdonius who denied the divinity of the Holy Spirit.

3- Council of Ephesus: (431 A.D.) because of Nestorius who separated between Christ's divinity and humanity.

* Copts had an effective role in these councils.
