Story: Diverse Christian churches

Elim Pentecostal Church, Auckland

Elim Pentecostal Church, Auckland

A team of enthusiastic young preachers lead the 2,500-strong congregation at the Elim Pentecostal Church in Auckland in 2007. Projected on the wall behind them are the words of their hymn:

The time has come
To stand for all we believe in
So I for one
Am gonna give my praise to you.
