Elim

Elim
   The Elim Fellowship began in America in 1933 as an informal association of churches, ministers and missionaries developing from those who trained at Elim Bible Institute and who were of ‘Pentecostal conviction and Charismatic orientation’. Akin to American Baptist churches, it regards the Bible as ‘the infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct’. It has benefited in Britain from increased recruitment to evangelical and fundamentalist Christian churches generally, and from some highprofile conversions including former SAS trooper Frank Collins, one of the team who stormed the Iranian Embassy, and the originator of Britain’s chatlines, Nigel Holmes, who now works for the Elim magazine, Direction.
