Statement of Faith
Salem Baptist is a Christian fellowship, seeking to glorify God the Father, by being disciples of God the Son, Jesus Christ, and doing so in the power of God the Holy Spirit.
We are Evangelical, by which we mean that we hold a high view of the Scriptures as God's word, a high view of the gospel of Jesus Christ (the good news) as 'the power of God for salvation' to all men, and a high view of evangelism as the means to convey the good news to those who don't yet follow Jesus.
We are Baptistic, which means that we believe only those who have reached such an age and maturity that they can give a credible profession of faith in Jesus should be baptized, by immersion.
And, we are Reformed, which means, among other things, that we hold to the Five Solas of the Reformation (the "alones": Scripture alone, grace alone, faith alone, Christ alone, the glory of God alone) and to the Doctrines of Grace, and that we practice a multiple elder-led, congregational form of church structure and leadership.
