Since its founding in 1924 as Elim Bible Institute, our school has been committed to the task of preparing Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered leaders for end-time global revival.


“The mission of Elim Bible Institute and College is to prepare Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered servant leaders for end-time global revival.”

Today, there are thousands of seasoned leaders all around the world who got their training at Elim. Their lives and ministries are a testimony to God’s faithfulness to us in carrying out the purpose He has given us.


 We Are a Community of Believers. Our staff and students comprise a community of believers committed to a life of expressive worship, prayer, simplicity, integrity, holiness, servanthood and mission-mindedness, both individually and corporately.

We Prepare Students for Ministry. We are committed to providing a setting where Spirit-impartation, systematic and intensive Bible study, academic excellence, and practical ministerial training and experience are woven together, so the student may be prepared for a variety of service opportunities.

We Welcome Differing Opinions. We are committed to unity among believers on the fundamentals of the faith, but liberty in other doctrinal matters.

We Pursue Revival. We are committed to discern, pursue, and participate in any fresh emphasis of the Holy Spirit’s work in each generation.
