Come join us for worship this Sunday, Jan. 3rd at 11am!
At Elim Baptist Church, our goal is the same in every area of ministry, from the nursery to senior adults, we exist to make disciples – to lead people to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their relationship with Him. It is our goal to present the Gospel to others in order to see the Holy Spirit change lives!
No matter where you are in your spiritual maturity & life, as part of Elim Baptist Church, you will experience the excitement and energy that comes from our constant focus of changing lives for Christ. It’s not just our mission, it’s who we are.
WHAT IS THE MISSION, THE STRATEGY, THE TOOLS, AND THE DESIRE OF OUR CHURCH?
OUR MISSION: THE GREAT COMMISSION “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
OUR STRATEGY: EVANGELISM AND DISCIPLESHIP “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:8
OUR TOOL: THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to every one who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16
OUR DESIRE: CHANGED LIVES “Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
OUR BELIEF ABOUT THE SCRIPTURES: The Bible is God's Holy Word. It was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true, infallible, and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.
