Councils (ecumenical)
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.
