What we believe
BAPTISM The bible does not teach that Baptism is about membership in a local church but that it is about publicly acknowledging the work of salvation that Jesus Christ has done in your life.
At ELIM F.G.C. we do not believe in the baptism of children or of adults BUT we believe in the baptism of born again believers
Mark 16:16 (NKJV) 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Acts 2:38 (NKJV) 38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 8:35-38 (NKJV) 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?” 37 Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”[a] 38 So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him.
