Welcome to EFA!
Welcome to Elsinore First Assembly, where our mission is to “Connect people to God, each other, and our community”.
We are a family-friendly church striving to become like the Christian church described in the Bible in Acts 2. We desire to be a church with relevant teaching, honest friendships, heart-felt contemporary music that expresses our love for God, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere where God changes lives. More than a church, we are a church family.
Elsinore First is a church where families have fun while they grow in faith, where we can be casual, comfortable, and real, and where we roll up our sleeves to serve, learn, worship, and eat together – often!
We look forward to meeting you soon. Please feel free to visit this coming Sunday.
ABOUT OUR SERVICES
Our Sunday English services start at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. and they are 75 minutes in length. The atmosphere is relaxed, the contemporary worship songs are inspiring and invigorating, and the Bible-based messages are meaningful and relevant to daily life. And please don’t worry – we don’t embarrass our guests; just welcome them and make sure they’re comfortable. We also have a gift for first time guests at our Guest Relations Center.
Our Wednesday service starts at 7:00 p.m. and is also 75 minutes in length. The atmosphere is also relaxed, and the worship and message is designed to help the believer to go deeper spiritually.

WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these,” said Jesus in Matthew 19:14.
We believe that children of all ages are a gift and treasure from God, and they are to be taught and raised up to know just how much they are loved.
Our mission statement is to partner with the parents in laying a foundation of spiritual truth so that each child will know he or she is treasured and, in God’s timing, become a lifelong follower of Jesus Christ, and grow to know, love and serve Him.
Through our programs on Sunday mornings, Wednesday nights, and activities throughout the year, children learn how the Bible fits into their lives, how to talk to God, and what it means to be a lifelong follower of Jesus. Children take the gospel to heart, building a foundation – and often, friendships – that last for the rest of their lives.
Programs are available for all children from babies and toddlers through High School age. See our Children and Student Pages under the Ministry tab for more information on our Sunday and Wednesday classes.
