Mission & Values

Mission Statement

Pursuing transforming relationships with God, each other, and our community


Everything we value flows out of our relationship with Jesus Christ.  (Colossians 3:1-4)

Scriptural Passion: 

We uphold the importance of a Biblical focus as we study the Scriptures, the revealed Word of God for us. Through the Scripture we can know God and His Son Jesus Christ, in whom we live empowered by the Holy Spirit.  (2 Timothy 3:15-17)

Authentic Relationships:

We are all about significant relationships. This is the way we live as the body of Christ at Salem Road. We are committed to living in real fellowship with God and each other.  (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Love Expressed in Outreach:   

We are devoted to loving God and sharing that love. We spread God’s love to those beyond our church through evangelism and mission so that they may also know the grace, glory, and love of our Lord Jesus Christ.  (2 Corinthians 5:14,17-20)

Equipping of the Believers:

We embrace the significance of encouraging our people to grow deeper in relationship to Jesus Christ. For it is only as we develop in discipleship, knowing and obeying God, that we will live like Jesus, using our gifts to serve one another.  (Ephesians 4:11-13)

Ministry Involvement:

We emphasize the need to be involved in making our community and world a better place to live through our actions and participation. God calls us to live with more than just ourselves in focus. We do this by getting involved in ministry to others.  (Ephesians 2:10)
