Church of the Open Door
Elyria, Ohio - United States
Church of the Open Door is a well established church that is known throughout our region with a growing, average weekly attendance of over 1,200. Our Sunday services include multiple campuses that are casual, energetic, and intentionally designed to help people encounter God through biblical teaching, creativity and worship. We are an evangelical, Spirit-filled, Spirit-led congregation that is best described by the term “empowered evangelical.” We seek to strike a balance that expresses our deep roots of historic, evangelical Christianity in Spirit-empowered, dynamic, contemporary formats. While not considered a “charismatic” church, there is an energetic, exciting sense of the presence of the Spirit in our worship. We are a strong biblically rooted church, but there is no stuffy, dead orthodoxy. We are not a seeker-focused church where few know how to worship and the majority end up spectating. Rather, the majority of our people are hungry to encounter God and express their worship to him. However we are seeker-sensitive and desire that our expressions of worship be inviting and contagious, not strange and exclusive.
