We are grateful for God's Love and take hope in the Amazing Grace of Jesus Christ


Salem First is a kind, caring congregation that seeks to be in mission. When you attend our services or special events it is our hope that you feel welcomed. We are all in a journey of faith, helping each other see the grace of God, experience the love of Jesus Christ and live in the comfort of the Holy Spirit.

Wherever you are in your faith journey, whether just starting out or having been at it for awhile, we invite you to come join us at our "Fortress of Faith".
