We are a community of faith that believes that Jesus Christ is Lord and that He lives. This Living Christ can meet us exactly where we are and change our whole perspective on life. We work to be a church without walls, a congregation engaged in our community for the cause of Jesus. Faith is more than what happens on Sunday mornings. It's a part of who we are, inside and out. At Elah, we believe in sharing the joy of the Gospel daily, and living a life that embodies the spirit of Christ.
