Darlington Elim Pentecostal Church is one of a growing movement of more than 550 Elim Churches across the UK and Ireland.
Our aim as a church is simple but challenging:
To BE disciples of Jesus and to MAKE disciples of Jesus (Matthew 28 v 16-20)
We believe that a healthy church will be growing in three 'directions':
This reflects our desire that, empowered by God Spirit and inspired by his word we grow in all three directions:
Upwards: Growing closer to God, developing a lifestyle of worship
Inwards: Growing closer to each other as God’s people, enjoying caring, honest friendships
Outwards: Growing our love for the community, demonstrating God's love in words and actions
In all of this, we recognise the vital importance of maintaining a close relationship with the Holy Spirit.
Growing, Seeking, Reaching, Believing, Bible-based, Holy Spirit inspired & empowered, Prayerful, Family-friendly
Our aims reflect those of the Elim Church nationally. With a heart to reach up to God in worship and out to the world in service, Elim aims to "build bigger people" who are fully resourced and equipped to take the full gospel to the whole world.
