Our History

Salem’s story is unique to our area and has woven into the fabric of Northwest Houston for over 165 years.

Salem is a movement of people actively working to impact homes, communities—locally and globally—with the reality of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ truth is timeless and has sustained and motivated the followers of Christ around the world for thousands of years and here at Salem since 1851.

As we look at our current ministry snapshot, we see an historic church poised by God to touch real families in ways we can only imagine. We have always been a church poised and ready to invite people to join us as we pursue real life – a life grounded in the compelling grace of God in Jesus Christ. A grace that redeems, restores, and empowers people to live with a sense of purpose, hope, and passion.

Throughout Salem’s history, we have pursued a life based on Jesus’  teachings found in Scripture. We have embraced His reality of love, grace, hope, wholeness, and faith.

As Salem looks to ministry ahead, one thing is clear:

God has given one Spirit to His one Church for one mission – to tell one story about the one Way, one Truth, and one Life. It just takes one conversation, one encounter, one relationship to transform one life from worthless to priceless, from powerless to unstoppable, from purposeless to tenacious.
