Our Beliefs

Oct 13, 2020


Welcome to St Andrew’s Episcopal Church, a vibrant and inclusive community located in Elyria. As an integral part of the community, we are dedicated to sharing our beliefs and values. Through this page, we aim to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of our faith and how it influences our daily lives.

Our Faith

At St Andrew’s Episcopal Church, our faith is rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ as found in the Holy Bible. We believe that He is the Son of God and our Savior, and through His life, death, and resurrection, we find salvation and eternal life.

Worship and Sacraments

Worship is an essential part of our faith community. We gather together to praise and glorify God through prayer, music, and liturgy. The sacraments of Baptism and Holy Eucharist hold a central place in our worship services. Baptism is a sacred act of initiation into the Christian faith, while Holy Eucharist is a commemoration of Jesus' Last Supper.

The Bible

The Holy Bible serves as our guidebook for faith and life. We believe that it contains the inspired word of God, providing us with wisdom, comfort, and guidance. Through studying and reflecting upon the scriptures, we deepen our understanding of God's will.

Our Values

As a community rooted in faith, we are committed to upholding certain values that guide our actions, relationships, and service to others. These values include:

  • Inclusivity: We strive to be an inclusive community that welcomes everyone, regardless of their background, race, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • Compassion: We believe in showing compassion and love towards one another, recognizing that each person is made in the image of God.
  • Justice: We are dedicated to advocating for justice, equality, and fairness in our local and global communities.
  • Community: We value the importance of building and nurturing a strong community that supports and uplifts one another.
  • Stewardship: We recognize our responsibility to care for the environment and use our resources wisely.

Our Contribution to Society

St Andrew’s Episcopal Church actively contributes to the betterment of society through various initiatives and programs. Our community involvement includes:

Charitable Outreach

We have partnered with numerous local organizations and charities to address the needs of the less fortunate. Through fundraising, volunteering, and donations, we contribute to initiatives that tackle homelessness, poverty, and hunger in our community.

Education and Spiritual Growth

We offer a range of educational programs, including Sunday School, Bible study groups, and spiritual retreats. These initiatives are aimed at nurturing personal growth, deepening our understanding of God's message, and equipping individuals to make a positive impact on society.

Environmental Stewardship

Recognizing the importance of environmental sustainability, we actively promote responsible stewardship of God's creation. We organize community clean-ups, promote recycling, and raise awareness about the importance of environmental conservation.

Interfaith Dialogue

We believe in fostering understanding and respect among people of different faith traditions. Through interfaith dialogue and collaboration, we work towards building bridges of friendship and promoting harmony within our diverse community.


St Andrew’s Episcopal Church is a welcoming and compassionate community that embraces our faith and values. Through our commitment to living out these beliefs, we strive to make a positive impact on society and inspire others to join us on this journey of faith.

Join us at St Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Elyria, where you will find a warm and inclusive community seeking to grow together in Christ.
