Alexandra Elim is a strongly Pentecostal church based in beautiful Central Otago. We are part of Elim NZ which has over 40 churches throughout the country, and many more thoughout the world.
Vision and Core Values
Our Vision is: Transformed Lives, Transforming Culture
We want to see lives transformed by the reality of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit. We then carry this spirit of transformation to change the world around us. We change culture by individuals carrying the light and presence of the Holy Spirit to places the church could never go, and by the church gathering together to outreach in ways that we could never do individually. We acknowledge that God is working powerfully in our communities and it is the privelege of the believer to partner with Him to bring transformation.
Our core values are:
Worship - Loving God as a lifestyle
Encounter - Valuing His presence
Family - Loving and investing in each other
Influence - Making a difference in our world
Pastors Aaron and Sarah More have been leading Alexandra Elim Church since April 2016, having previously served on staff at Tauranga Elim Church for 8 years.
In late 2013, the Lord gave Aaron a dream about moving to Alexandra. This was quickly confirmed several times and at the beginning of 2015 the More family relocated to Alexandra.
They have a passion to see the kingdom manifest in all aspects of society and to lead a church where individuals join a family, experience the reality of the Holy Spirit and discover their identity and purpose.
