Message from the Pastor

Jesus is real.  And He loves you. God is good and He has a plan for your life. Even as you read these words, the Holy Spirit is at work to draw you to our heavenly Father, and bring you into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ, or deepen your walk with Him.

Elim Christian Fellowship is a group of regular people on a faith journey, who want to grow in relationship with each other and with God.  My prayer is that you are already part of Bible-based, Holy-Spirit-led church community, intent on encountering God.  If you’re still looking, I invite you to check us out.

Pat Burden has been the Senior Pastor at Elim Christian Fellowship since February 2015.
