Who We Are


El Shaddai is a Hebrew name for God, which can be translated as “God Almighty” or “the all-sufficient God”. It expresses an important part of our understanding of the God we worship and whose Kingdom purposes we’re committed to.

El Shaddai Church is committed to pray for a breakthrough in your life, for peace in your family and minister healing and deliverance to the sick and hurting.

Our vision is to reach out to the community around us who haven’t yet heard about the goodness of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ. If you are looking for a good church in Bangalore, then you should visit us.

Apart from hosting God in our weekly Sunday services, we strive to reach out to people in our immediate surroundings. We would like to focus on enriching families through the truth of God’s Word.

The El Shaddai Church family strongly believes and operates in the power of God for healing and signs & wonders. We believe in the supernatural work of God in saving people and edifying the saints.


  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all sufficient rule for faith and practice.
  • We believe in the unity of the One True and Living God who is the Eternal, Self-Existent “I AM”, Who has also revealed Himself as One being co-existing in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Miraculous Ministry, Substitutionary Atoning Death, Bodily Resurrection, Triumphant Ascension and Abiding Intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His personal, visible, bodily return in power and glory as the blessed hope of all believers
  • We believe in the fall of man, who was created pure and upright, but fell by voluntary transgression.
  • We believe in salvation through faith in Christ, who, according to the Scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead on the third day, and that through His Blood we have Redemption. This experience is also known as the new birth, and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as an enduement of the believer with power for service, the essential, biblical evidence of which is the speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
  • We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of Christ in the Church today.
  • We believe in the Church as the eternal and universal Body of Christ consisting of all those who have accepted the work of the atonement.
  • We believe that deliverance from sickness, by Divine Healing is provided for in the Atonement.
  • We believe in the ordinance of water baptism by immersion in obedience to the Word of God.
  • We believe that all who have truly repented and believe in Christ as Lord and Savior should regularly participate in Breaking of Bread.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the everlasting conscious bliss of all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ.
