The Core of Elim Grace

Our Values


Discipleship: We are committed to encouraging spiritual growth in each individual as followers of Christ, building a devotional life of prayer, Bible reading and other spiritual exercises.

Spiritual Gifts: We are committed to the full operation of spiritual gifts and will provide opportunity for every believer to discover, develop and use their spiritual gifts to fulfill the mission of the church.

Stewardship: We are committed to honoring God with our time, talents and treasures; recognizing that tithing, accompanied by freewill offerings, is God’s ordained method to finance the spreading of the Gospel and the needs of the local assembly.

Regular Fellowship: We are committed to gathering weekly as a local assembly, holding regular Bible studies and small groups, and sharing as a big part of the church’s strategy for care and training. Regular feeding equals healthy souls.

Developing Leaders: We are committed to identifying and developing Spirit-led leadership, willing to be influential and accountable, eager to make a difference in this life. We are especially committed to training future generations.

Relevance: We are committed to relevance (not being “cool”) in our methods of worship and ministry, not allowing meaningless religious traditions to keep us from reaching ours and future generations with the Gospel.

Evangelism: We are committed to evangelistic outreach of all people with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Community Service: We are committed to community involvement, helping to set its course by our service and example of grace and righteousness.

Human Life: We are committed to upholding the sanctity of all human life from conception onward.

Missions: We are committed to sending and supporting missionaries as extensions of our local church, in both long and short-term, foreign and local, missions.

Families: We are committed to building strong, extended families; by helping to provide training materials for our children, modeling solid discipleship and wise parenting for every home and household.

Cooperation in Unity: We are committed to working to the fullest extent towards unity between local churches, concentrating upon our commonly held faith, not ignoring our deeply held values but also not attempting to lead with our distinctions.
