While striving to grow spiritually to become Christ-like, Elim has always maintained a strong “come as you are” culture.
Our mission is to grow – grow in body, soul and spirit
Our vision statement is clear – reach & teach
Following the rewarding directive of Jesus as He taught in Matthew 28:19 it is a great honor and joy to reach others with the good news of Jesus Christ and to do all we can to make disciples of all nations starting with our local, vibrant and growing church body.
We have a passion for people, our city and our world. This church has a culture that is characterized by worship, the presence of God, family, revival, miracles and healings, and honor. Our rich history and leadership of multiple generations have shaped these as well as the following core values.
We often refer to our faith as “apostolic,” which may not be a real common word in our culture today, but we like that word because we are really making ever effort to connect to the apostles at the very beginning of Christianity. While culture has changed over the past two millenniums, the truth taught in the Bible has not.
While recognizing that none of us are perfect we are trying to live through what we see the Scriptures are telling us. The following is a brief description of what we believe.
When you visit Elim Tabernacle, you can expect to see a variety of people, from differing backgrounds and at different points in their walk with God, coming together to worship our Creator.
About the Bible:
The Bible is the true and inspired Word of God, complete for living today and forever.
There is only one God, who loves us immeasurably, and He reveals Himself to us as the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and the Holy Spirit in regeneration. His name is Jesus.
Relationship with God:
Our number one priority is our personal relationship with God. Our primary life focus is to extend extravagant joy and gratitude to our great Creator.
Freedom through Salvation:
Salvation frees us from the power of the devil – sin, lies, sickness and torment.
Our worship can be characterized as energetic and spirited, because we are excited about what God has done and is continuing to do. However, we encourage you to express your worship in whatever way is most comfortable to you.
