our most recent message ☝🏼
A place to explore questions and doubts.
If you can’t make an in-person gathering, watch or listen online. These messages will be similar to what is communicated at our in-person gatherings on Sundays. We release a new episode each weekend. You can watch online or listen via your favorite podcast app.
Podcast feed available also, or see below.
Community in small groups.
Discover people who are for you and each other. In our small groups, you don’t have to believe to belong. We connect in homes throughout the Salem/Keizer area throughout the week. Groups usually discuss the weekend’s message, after they have either watched online or an in-person gathering. Sign up or ask a question below, or email us.
Alliances is another method of growing in community, usually in smaller pairs or triads. Contact us if you want to find out more about those: at an in-person service, using our email, or the button below.
Done with intention:
- Simple gatherings with music, communion, a message, followed by fellowship and snacks. The focus is on community, not a Sunday event.
- Small groups connecting regularly in homes. Belonging and hospitality were Jesus’ priority, too!
- Weekly messages filmed specifically for online audience. Coming back to church, or first time explorations of faith, can be hard enough. We want to make it easy for you to check us out.
- Following Jesus is a practiced, daily life of love, living in the Kingdom of God now. So, we are FOR Salem, living simply and locally, and loving our neighbor.

What we believe
There is a God.
He loves you and he is for you.
He is not disinterested or mad at you.
He wants you to know, trust, and love him.
He became a human, Jesus.
Jesus showed us what God is really like in his life, death and resurrection.
He invites everyone to enjoy a transforming, meaningful, and relational life through his love… now and forever.
Below, in alphabetical order, is our leadership team. Also not pictured are a slew of dedicated volunteers who also live and lead with the love of Jesus.
