Legacy Giving

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.  In this way, they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.  1 Timothy 6:17-19

Our heritage and our future

From the first frame church on a few acres to the one hundred plus acre campus we occupy today, generous hearts have provided land, buildings, salaries, and millions of dollars in support of mission and ministry since 1851. Generations of people have come and gone but the gospel of grace continues to be lived out and taught at Salem.

We can be confident God’s call to make Jesus real in the lives of people will carry us forward into a future of service to Christ and His Church.
