Elim Baptist Church

Believe, Belong, Become, Build!

Exodus 15:27 – "...Then they came to Elim."


Welcome to Elim Baptist Church

"Then they came to Elim..." a Southern Baptist Church, which was established in 1786. We are a faithful and loving body of believers centered around Jesus Christ, the foundation of the church. While we have been around for many years, we still have a vision for the future.

- Pastor Wesley Mayfield

Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Wesley began serving at Elim Baptist Church in June 2019. He and his wife, Dena, along with their two daughters, Jenna and Kelsey, followed the Lord’s call to serve here. We are excited about the Lord leading them here to spread the Good News about Jesus from Effingham to the ends of the earth!

Pastor Wesley is a graduate of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and has been in the pastoral ministry since 2008. The Lord’s will has led him and his family to serve churches in North and South Carolina.

Both he and his wife are originally from Georgetown, South Carolina. Growing up along the South Carolina coast instilled inside Pastor Wesley a love for hunting and fishing. When he’s not in the office or pulpit, he enjoys running, playing golf, and spending time with his family.

A life verse central to everything that Pastor Wesley pursues is Proverbs 16:3: “Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will succeed.”

Vision Statement

Elim Baptist Church exists to glorify God by equipping His people for ministry. A ministry which includes faithfulness to God's Will; faithfulness to corporate worship and Bible study; and faithfulness to telling about Jesus Christ, who gives us a pattern for Christian living. 

Our vision is to help people Believe in Jesus, Belong to a church family, Become a disciple, and Build His Kingdom. 

We offer ministries for all ages, which will give you an opportunity to serve as the Lord leads you and also grow in your walk with Him.  We are excited about what God is doing through Elim in reaching out to the community and the world through our missions.
