Founded in 1938, St. Elias Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church is a parish in Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. St Elias Church is originated from the Christian church founded in Antioch by the Apostles Peter and Paul, as mentioned in the book of Acts (Acts 11:26), it was there that believers in Christ were first called “Christians.”
This makes St. Elias Church an extraordinary parish and amongst the most diverse of any Christian church in the region. In addition to its traditional Syrian and Lebanese ethnic base, which has been buoyed by a new wave of immigrants over the past 20 years, the church counts East Africans, eastern Europeans, Russians, and numerous converts from other Christian religions among its membership. As a result, St. Elias has become a beacon of the pan-Orthodox movement.
St. Elias Church isn’t denominational, nor it is non-denominational, it is pre-denominational. Our Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is Orthodox, but not Jewish. It is Catholic, but not Roman. St. Elias Church is proud to be a part of the original Orthodox Church who has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost 2,000 years ago.
