About us

Our vision at Elim Church Dunedin is more people becoming more like Jesus. We are a community, a family, who are becoming more Christ-like in our being and doing. We prioritise relationships by whole-heartedly loving God and loving people, all in response to His great love for us. It looks like a grace-filled community of people who are doing the very things Jesus did; teaching the truth, healing the sick, serving the marginalised, and above all, making disciples of Jesus.

How? Through studying and living out God's Word, through joy-filled worship of our amazing God, and through the power of the Holy Spirit who brings break-through and encouragement.

Get connected and be part of what God is doing in Elim Dunedin.
