The Elim Vision

The Elim Vision

What is a vision? A clear, challenging picture of the future of our ministry. Vision isn't about reality or what is. Vision is all about our dreams and aspirations or what could be.

We envision...

Sharing the good news of Christ's death and resurrection with thousands of unchurched friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and people across southeastern Michigan, many of whom accept Him as Savior.

We envision...

Becoming a church of small life-building groups where, together, people love, care, edify, bear with, pray for and watch over one another in the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Our goal is to maintain an 80% retention rate of new membership.

We envision...

Becoming a servant-minded church where we adopt the "every member a minister" model of church ministry so that our greatness lies not in who we are but in what we do for others.

We envision...

Becoming the premier evangelical church in the city of Detroit, leading to the expansion of our facilities to accommodate our extraordinary growth.

We envision...

The creation of a first-rate biblical training institute at our church in order to train and send out the next generation of pastors, missionaries and church workers all over the world.

We envision...

The development of our Children and Youth Ministries to include cutting-edge ministry strategies that engage and empower our youth, leading to the explosive growth of the youth population in our church.

We envision...

Our Sunday services to be times of authentic and vibrant worship consisting of generational variety. Our goal is to have a healthy mix of families, singles, men, women, young and older adults and children in our worship services.

We envision...

The wise and discerning use of technology and other Digital Age media to facilitate reaching a new generation of people. We also want to take advantage of the latest in design graphics to create, among other things, beautiful church bulletins, church logos, customized church apparel and websites.

We envision...

Becoming a center of community engagement. We want to be the guardians of our community (Berg-Lahser) and therefore envision ourselves involved in such things as neighborhood clean-ups, crime watches, boarding up vacant homes and engaging directly with the youth of our area.

This is our dream--our vision about what could be!
