A Place to Replenish
The name Elim is found in Exodus 15:27. It was a place between Marah, the place of bitter water and the Wilderness of Sin. At Elim there were twelve wells of water and seventy fruitful palm trees. It was a place of replenishing. If you ever feel yourself getting a little weak on the journey, we invite you to come be replenished by the worship and Word of God. We look forward to seeing you!
Renewal & Growth
On Thursday – August 13, 2015 Elim Baptist Church gathered and extended the call to Reverend George C. Miller, III to be its next Pastor. The congregation overwhelmingly affirmed the character, gifts and talents of Pastor Miller. In a very short time, we have experienced new life, exciting progress and a renewed focus on the future. Elim Baptist Church has truly become a place of G.R.O.W.T.H.
Elim Family
The Elim leadership and the Elim Baptist Family have been very effective in shaping and guiding my spiritual, emotional, professional and personal growth. In terms of my total growth experience, I have been blessed with role models here at Elim who sometimes, without even being aware, were guiding me in choices and decision making based upon their daily walk with the Lord.

Our Origin

In 1886, over 600 black Augustans attended the Springfield Baptist Church. Since this church was located “downtown,” some of its members organized the Cumming Grove Baptist Church to serve the spiritual needs of black Baptists who lived in the area referred to as “Sand Hill.”

Elim emerged in the 19th century, when white families living in the exclusive Summerville area helped buy properties in nearby Sand Hills for their black employees. According to various documents and sources, Elim Baptist Church emerged from Cumming Grove and was organized at the home of Deacon Albert Taylor.
