The Elim Pentecostal Church has had a phenomenal impact on the UK. This complete and official history, written in two volumes, chronicles its story from 1915 to the present day.
This first volume covers the years 1915-1940. Introducing Elim’s founder, George Jeffreys, and other prominent leaders, it explores their roots in the Asuza Street and Welsh revivals, and the Sunderland and Keswick conventions. The Movement’s humble beginnings and rapid, evangelistic spread across the UK are charted, along with the accompanying demonstrations of the Spirit’s power that marked it out.
Sensitive consideration is also given to the painful division that resulted in Jeffreys leaving Elim in 1940 to establish another denomination. This split, together with the outbreak of World War Two, had a devastating impact but, as the second volume records, Elim’s work was far from done.
