Welcome to Holy Spirit's Orthodox Christian Bookstore!
Our online bookstore is hosted by Amazon.com. Anytime a person enters the Amazon.com website through our Church's online bookstore and makes a purchase, a small contribution is made to the parish by Amazon. Books may be purchased directly from our webpages.
While our bookstore only lists books, and features books on Orthodox Christianity,
the same great selection of products (Music, Electronics, Cameras, etc.) that Amazon.com is known for may be purchased on Amazon.com using our bookstore as a portal.
You can enter the Amazon.com website by right clicking the Amazon.com logo in the search box and purchase anything that Amazon.com sells. Please remember though, in order for Holy Spirit Orthodox Church to receive a contribution, you must enter Amazon.com through the Church's bookstore at the time of purchase.

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”
Holy Spirit Orthodox Church is part of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey, which is presided over by The Most Reverend Michael (Dahulich), Archbishop of New York. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within the tri-state area of northern NJ, northeastern PA, and southern NY.
The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.
Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
