We’d love to invite you to take a look closer at the vision of Elevate Church, hear the story and meet the team.



Elevate Church is a church for this generation. It is filled with vibrant, enthusiastic, passionate people with the focus to champion the cause of Christ.

The New Pastors since 2010 Ps Raj and Mavis, it has flourished under their leadership that has a firm foundation on the word of God, the Bible. Their desire is to see each person empowered by the Holy Spirit to reach their God-given destiny, and the kingdom of God established and therefore bring the positive influence of the gospel of Christ to their society through word and deed.

The church is known for its love and acceptance, passionate praise and worship, its inspirational preaching of God’s word and acts of the Holy Spirit. Its members are very active helping the church to function and reach the wider community with the love of Christ through acts of kindness and the power of God.

Elevate Church has a vision to bring Christ to their world because..

“the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor, He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour and the day of  vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow to them a crown of beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise instead of the spirit of despair. They will be called mighty oaks, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”   Isaiah 61:1-3


We believe that the Bible is God's inspired Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day lives.

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory over every sin, sickness and limitation and empower us for life and life to the full.

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, confess our belief in Him and submit to His will for our lives.

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to walk in the fruits of the spirit and use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues, which is the initial evidence of baptism in the Holy Spirit. We believe the gifts are for every believer.

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively. We believe that the price paid by Jesus Christ on the cross was sufficient to heal us of every sickness and disease. We also believe in His power to heal the heart and mind thus enabling us to live wholly and complete.

We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
