Abstract: This paper surveys Coptic religious thought and its expansion in the history of the early church using the historical critical method. It also compares the growth and the challenges encountered by the Coptic Church with those of otherAfrican churches, particularly the Nigerian church. Such roles played by the Coptic Church over the years are significant lessons for the modern church particularly the tension—related areas, where religious conflicts are defining the quest for dominance in Africa. The work also discusses the survival strategies employed by the Coptic Church and states what the modern church should aspire for as Islamic tension increases in most African countries.
