History & Beliefs


The Elim Church was founded in the County of Monaghan, Ireland, in 1915. It grew with amazing rapidity as a result of the great evangelistic meetings of George Jeffreys, its founder. 

The name “Elim” is taken from the book of Exodus, where we read that the Israelites “came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water, and seventy palm trees; and they encamped there by the waters” (Exodus 15:27). This oasis in the wilderness is a fitting symbol for a church which preaches a message of rest and refreshing, salvation and healing for body, soul and spirit in the wilderness of this world.
