Elim Motherwell - About Us

About Us

Elim is an international movement, founded in 1915 on four basic biblical truths - that Jesus Christ is Saviour, Healer, Baptiser and Coming King. Elim grew rapidly as a result of evangelistic outreaches and continues to grow both in this country and abroad. There are currently over 500 Elim Churches in the United Kingdom with many more affiliated groups worldwide.

Elim is led by a National Leadership Team and the country is divided into regions. Each church has its own leadership structure.

Elim Christian Centre, Motherwell has a Senior Leader in Pastor John Murfin. He and his wife Tracey oversee the church together with Core Leaders who are the servants of the church.

The name Elim is taken from Exodus Ch 15:27 in the Bible. It refers to an oasis in the wilderness, a place of refreshing in the desert. That is what we aim to be “A place where people can be refreshed in God in a world that can seem so dry and arid”
