Welcome to St. Andrew’s

At St. Andrew’s we believe that women and men are made expressly to be in relationship with God through Jesus Christ and that our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Him. Learn more about who we are and about getting connected at St. Andrew’s.

What We Believe

At the center of our life is the gospel of Jesus Christ.  We believe that the gospel tells us one truth about humanity and four truths about God. Learn more about our Vision and Values and What We Believe.
