Our faith


Debre Tsion Kidist Mariam Church in London propagates the Christian faith of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church is one of the oldest churches in the world and shares a common faith with the Oriental Orthodox family of the Armenian, Egyptian, Syrian and Indian (Malankara) churches.

We believe: in one God the Father almighty, maker of heaven, earth and all things visible and invisible. And we believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of the Father who was with Him before the creation of the world: Light from light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one essence with the Father: By whom all things were made, and without Him nothing in heaven or earth made: Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, was made man and was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and from the holy Virgin Mary. Became man, was crucified for our sakes in the days of Pontius Pilate, suffered, died, was buried and rose from the dead on the third day as written in the holy scriptures: Ascended in glory into heaven, sits at the right hand of His Father, and will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead; there is no end of His reign. And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the life-giving God, who proceedeth from the Father; we worship and glorify Him with the Father and the Son; who spoke by the prophets; And we believe in on holy, universal, apostolic church, And we believe in one baptism for the remission of sins, and wait for the resurrection from the dead and the life to come, world without end. Amen

May the Grace, Peace and Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!!!
