Who We Are

Sharing the love of Jesus to restore broken relationships and bringing healing to wounded hearts and lives;
Calling God's people to "restore the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers" and to "restore all things".

Elijah house is an inter-denominational group of people, started by John and Paula Sandford in the USA, working together to help the Church accomplish the 'Elijah Task' based on Malachi 4v5-6.

Elijah House unites people with Jesus so they may experience the transforming power of His death and resurrection. It serves to inspire and educate people to confess their sins, forgive, and equip one another towards maturity.

It is holistic a total 'sweep clean' including deliverance ministry, and total relational/ emotional healing. The intended outcome is positive social and community changes, including spiritually and emotionally healthy churches and families.
