The Egyptian Council of Churches welcomes and supports the statement issued by the Episcopal Church in Egypt, in which it declared its strong and firm adherence to the teachings of the Bible regarding marriage and the only written picture of marriage, which is the sacred and permanent connection between one man and one woman .. And that any other form of connection between two of the same type is totally rejected ..

The five churches that are members of the Council of Churches of Egypt affirm their adherence to the teachings of Christ and the teachings of the Bible in this regard
