Agora of Alexandria: An Ancient Intellectual Hub

At the heart of the great city of Alexandria in Egypt and at the intersection of Canopic Street and Pharos Street stood one of the most well-known public squares in the World. The Agora of Alexandria, which was only a few steps west of the Great Library of Alexandria, witnessed some of humanity’s most astute thinkers, teachers and philosophers, the formation of profound teachings and free speech. Carefully situated between the Roman quarters (west), the Hellenic quarters (east) and the Coptic quarters (north), the Agora of Alexandria has been regarded as the intellectual meeting place of the ancient world.

Statement of Faith

As an indigenous Orthodox Christian organization, our Statement of Faith is the Scripture-based Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed of 325 and 381 A.D. as follows:

We believe in one God, God the Father the Pantocrator who created heaven and earth, and all things seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages; Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten not created, of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made; Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary and became Man. And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried. And on the third day He rose from the dead, according to the Scriptures, ascended to the heavens; He sits at the right hand of his Father, and He is coming again in His glory to judge the living and the dead, Whose kingdom shall have no end. Yes, we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Life-Giver, Who proceeds from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church. We confess one baptism for the remission of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the coming age. Amen.
