Faith Statement

Camp Elim is a Christian Camp, affiliated with Mennonite Church Saskatchewan.

We believe in Jesus Christ,

  • who was promised to the people of Israel,
  • who came in the flesh to dwell among us,
  • who announced the coming of the rule of God,
  • who gathered disciples and taught them,
  • who died on the cross to free us from sin,
  • who rose from the dead to give us life and hope,
  • who reigns in heaven at the right hand of God,
  • who comes to judge and bring justice to victory.

We believe in God,

  • who raised Jesus from the dead,
  • who created and sustains the universe,
  • who acts to deliver God's people in times of need,
  • who desires everyone everywhere to be saved,
  • who rules over the destinies of people and nations,
  • who continues to love us even when we turn away.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

  • who is the form of God present in the church,
  • who moves us to faith and obedience,
  • who is the guarantee of our deliverance,
  • who leads us to find God's will in the word,
  • who assists those who are renewed in prayer,
  • who guides us in discernment,
  • who impels us to act together.

We believe God has made us a people,

  • to invite others to follow Christ,
  • to encourage one another to deeper commitment,
  • to proclaim forgiveness of sins and hope,
  • to reconcile people to God through word and deed,
  • to bear witness to the power of love over hate,
  • to proclaim Jesus the Ruler of all,
  • to meet daily tasks of life with purpose,
  • to suffer joyfully for the cause of right,
  • to the ends of the earth,
  • to the end of the age,
  • to the praise of Christ's glory.
