Greater Salem Baptist Church Mission (GSBC) Statement:
Seeking to “Make Disciples for Jesus Christ, one heart at a time, one family at a time” Matthew 28:18-20
GSBC Statement of Purpose:
"The Purpose of our Church is to be Relevant for Eternity."
THE STATEMENT OF ACTION
Upon receiving spiritual gifts and a calling from the Lord to teach the inerrant truth of God’s Word through the unction of the Holy Spirit, we commit to evangelize the world, develop, encourage and equip disciples to live and love in the unity of peace as we walk worthy of the calling with all lowliness and gentleness, with long-suffering, bearing with one another in love. We further endeavor to join and knit together all followers of Jesus Christ to effectively do the work of the ministry in order for every person to do their share, resulting in the maturity (growth) of the body for the edifying of itself in the love of Christ Jesus.
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by the divinely inspired and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instructions; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world; the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried.
We (GSBC) hold fast to the truths of The Great Commission:
We Exalt God in worship (Matthew 22:36-37; Acts 2:43-37) in order to give the proper response of the created to the Creator; the necessary response from the redeemed to the Redeemer (Revelations 5:9).
We Evangelize, so that all the world will be drawn to worship a Holy and Merciful God. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:41,42).
We Equip believers so that their lives might give worthy praise in service. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:42).
We Edify others through ministry intended to be a practical expression of praise and adoration. (Matthew 22:39; Acts 2:44-45).
We Encounter God in Prayer as one worthy to hear our praises and confessions even as He responds to our petitions. (Acts 2:42).
We Encourage each other through fellowship, as part of our mandate to honor Him with our lives and uphold His standards. (Acts 2:42,46).
We believe that our Personal Walk with God (Ephesians 4:1-6) is to be evident in our family (Ephesians 5:22-6:4), our Church (Ephesians 4:1-32; 5:1-21), and our work (Ephesians 6:5-9).
Finally, we believe and understand that the Cross reminds us of our biblical mandate to proclaim the gospel to the world. We will continue to look beyond ourselves to fulfill the Great Commission.
Honestly to God that you have sinned and disobeyed Him.
THE BIBLE SAYS:
No sin is allowed in heaven.
That Jesus died on the cross and rose again. His blood was shed to pay for your sins.
THE BIBLE SAYS:
Because Jesus loves you so much, He took the punishment for you so that you can be forgiven.
To trust Jesus alone for the forgiveness of your sins.
THE BIBLE SAYS:
When you trust in Jesus Christ alone to save you, God forgives you! You become His child, and He promises you a home in heaven forever! Put your trust in Jesus as your Savior from sin. Do it today, and begin following Him by obeying His Word, the Bible.
We welcome all to come joins us for a wonderful worship service as well as the other opportunities of worship we have available.
