St. Nicholas Orthodox Church


Salem, MA


come and See!

When our Lord was calling His Apostles, they asked Jesus where he was staying. “Come and see!” was the Master’s reply, and that is our reply to the whole world. Come and see!

When you enter our church doors, enter with expectation, and breathe in the very air of the Kingdom. Let us greet you with the ancient cry, “Christ is in our midst!" Draw near to Him and hear the words of life. And lay aside your earthly cares, and receive the King of all… Christ our true God!

The Orthodox Church offers you a gift beyond value. Indeed the Orthodox Church offers you Christ. And in His Church, Christ offers Himself to you.

St. Nicholas seeks to spread the good news of God’s love to all. We are committed to placing Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, first in our daily lives. We are firmly rooted in the teaching of Holy Scripture and the unchanging Christian witness of the Early Church.

We seek to grow in holiness through through lives of repentance, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, and constant prayer.

And we hope that you will join us as we strive to worship the one God and Father “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23).

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
— John 13:34-35

The orthodox faith is the eternal faith "once entrusted to all the saints". Whether 1st-century or 21st-century, all Orthodox Christians are truly “first Christians”... receiving directly from Christ and his Apostles the fullness of the Gospel, through the ongoing activity of the Holy Spirit, and to the glory of God the Father. Join us as we devote ourselves to the apostle's teaching, fellowship, communion and prayer.
