'LOVING GOD, LOVING PEOPLE’
IN ALL THAT WE DO, WE AIM
TO LOVE AND SERVE GOD AND EACH OTHER,
MEETING THE NEEDS WITHIN OUR FELLOWSHIP
AND THE COMMUNITY AROUND US.
HOW WILL WE SEEK TO ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION?
We value and respect all people who come into our fellowship. We aim to encourage everyone to grow in their commitment to and relationship with God, enabling each person to achieve their full potential.
We aim to be aware of and praying for the needs of our local community and town, and to be available to meet thoses needs wherever possible.
As a leadership we aim to be inspired by God as we lead the church, building on the past but looking to the future. We aim to lead with integrity and openness, serving and strengthening the people of our fellowship.
In our meetings, we expect our times together to be both challenging and life changing encounters with God as we meet in an environment of praise, worship and ministry through God's Word.
VISION VS. STRATEGY
Elim Harrogate is committed to a vision, to 'love God and love people' in order to see people far from God filled with life in Christ. That is the thing that drives every decision we make and guides every discussion we have. We are not afraid to try a strategy to see if it works and move on to something else if it was ineffective. With our end goal in mind we will embrace a strategy we believe will advance the vision. Strategies come and go, but the vision will never change. Programmes and facilities are expendable and will constantly change but the vision will remain the same... That's our commitment to God and the town of Harrogate....
