A community of people united in Jesus Christ, loved unconditionally, forgiven by God, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to live in response to God’s gift of grace.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Elim Lutheran Church seeks to be a healing, equipping, and serving community of faith.
Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they encamped there by the water.
Elim, with its twelve springs and seventy palm trees was an excellent stopping place for the children of Israel as they made their way from slavery in Egypt to the Promised Land. Elim Lutheran Church is also a “grace place” where people find hope and encouragement for living the Christian life in this world. Elim is the second oldest Lutheran congregation in Utah and as such has had its imprint on many believers and other congregations through the years.
Come to Elim and you will discover our worship is contemporary and Lutheran. We are a small church with a big heart. We have a quality Sunday School for children, youth and adults and strive to do a number of things for the community in which we live.
Our Lutheran theology helps us to be Word based, Cross focused, and Christ centered.
We recognize Scripture as God’s authoritative word where we find hope, direction, and purpose in everyday life. This is important in a world that struggles to know and recognize truth.
We are “cross-eyed” – seeing all people through the lens of the cross. The ground is level at the base of the cross. We are all sinners in need of grace, and we all have the grace we need because of Jesus. The love of God in Christ is the focal point from which all our theology and actions flow.
The Gospel in a nut shell, John 3:16, tells us that Jesus is God’s gift of love to all people. Jesus is the Savior of the world, not just a few select people. As such we are a reconciling congregation where all people are welcome to come and grow. None of us are a finished product. God is still at work in each one of us. We are all “in process.”
We invite you to come, check us out. Worship with us. Become a part of our fellowship. Together we can strive to be God’s people making a difference in our world, one person, one heart, one life at a time.
