Reach the world.
Salem Heights Church is a gospel-centered church located in Salem, Oregon.
Nothing is as precious or as powerful as the gospel. The Apostle Paul described it in his first letter to the Corinthians as being of first importance (1 Corinthians 15:3). Throughout God's all-sufficient Word, the good news of the Gospel is relevant. It is the power of God to convert a sinner in a moment and to mature a believer over his or her lifetime (Romans 1:16). Salem Heights Church exists to make the Gospel relevant for the pleasure of God and the good of our neighbors.
Three phrases summarize our heart at Salem Heights Church: Love God. Love Others. Reach the World.
Our ultimate desire is that through our purpose "we proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ" (Colossians 1:28).
TO REACH people and communicate God's Word through evangelism.
TO CREATE a nurturing, compassionate and safe place that cares about meeting the needs of individuals.
TO UPHOLD the standards of God's Word which bring a freedom to know Christ and His purpose for our life.
TO IMPASSION each person with the desire to see the qualities of Jesus Christ reproduced in the lives of others through committed discipleship and caring accountability.
TO ACTIVELY PRAISE, worship, and adore God and to acknowledge His power and presence in our lives.
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the Divine revelation of God and that every word of the entire original documents was inspired.
We believe in one living and true God who exists eternally in three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
We believe Jesus Christ, equal in nature with the Father and Holy Spirit, came to earth through a supernatural birth, possessing both a divine and human nature, and lived a sinless life, qualifying Him to die for the sins of all mankind.
We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but through personal disobedience is a sinner in need of salvation.
We believe salvation is a gift of grace from God received through faith alone in the gospel, which is neither merited nor secured in part or whole by any virtue or work of man.
We believe that the church is made up of believers in Christ and is committed to the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s supper.
We believe that each believer is sealed by the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation and receives a spiritual gift that is to be used for the edification and good of the local church.
We believe in the imminent, personal, pretribulation, premillennial, appearance of Christ to rapture the church.
