In 1990, St. Mary Coptic Orthodox Church moved to its first permanent home at 2370 Red Lion Road Newark, DE. We continued at Red Lion for 15 years. At that time, we began plans to build our current home on Otts Chapel Road. In the fall of 2008, construction began at our current site at 1644 Otts Chapel Road, Newark, DE. The project continued for 3 years. Finally, in the Spring of 2011, we celebrated the opening of our current site at 1644 Otts Chapel Road, Newark, DE. 19072. Today, the church has over 120 families. The Mother of God
Maria is truly the Mother of God. The dogma that declared Mary as the Mother of God or Theotokos is the central dogma within Mariology.
Therefore we confess one Christ, one Son, one Lord. According to this understanding of the unconfused union, we confess the holy virgin to be the mother of God because God the Word took flesh and became man and from his very conception united to himself the temple he took from her. This is the oldest of all dogmas concerning the Blessed Virgin. It is not only essential in Marian Theology but also in the Theology of Christ. For if Mary was not the Mother of God, then Jesus was in fact not God.
