Our Vision at Elim Community Church, Hawick
In Acts 2 we see a picture of the church as a community committed to worship, caring for one another, prayer, the study of the Scriptures, serving the community and world and sharing the gospel.
This example of the early church was an earthly replication of God's earthly family, based on the fellowship within the Trinity. Elim Community Church is a family of believers.
We are experiencing that God is building the family for all-comers, no matter where you are at, whatever your history. This is a place to find rest and to be strengthened in your life's journey. It is a place to grow in God's grace and to discover the person you were born to become.
The Elim Community Church family is a place to find peace and love in a Christian community. We are people who are eager to align ourselves with God, revealed to us in Jesus Christ, as we follow His teachings based on the Great Commandment.
The Great Commandment: Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22:36-40
