Welcome! We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit St. Nektarios Orthodox Church’s website. We are committed to sharing with you the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ here in Waxahachie, TX and hope that God will grant you his mercy on your journey.
St. Nektarios Orthodox Church is a mission church of the Orthodox Church in America under the Archpastoral direction of His Eminence, NIKON, Archbishop of Boston, and Locum Tenens of the Diocese of the South. The Orthodox Church in America is the autocephalous (self-governing) Orthodox Church on this continent, whose jurisdiction runs from Canada through Mexico under the omophor of His Beatitude TIKHON, Archbishop of Washington, Metropolitan of all America and Canada.
The Orthodox Church is the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church professed in the Nicene Creed, which guards the “faith once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). While such a statement can indeed be received as an arrogant one, we are the Church by grace, not by triumph or merit, and seek only to share the fullness of the Gospel with all who will hear it.
