The leadership of our church is divided among roles the Bible
calls elders and deacons. The elders are those men whom God
has gifted with wisdom, godliness, and knowledge of God's
word. They are the spiritual leaders, and provide direction and
oversight of the church.
The deacons are men and women elected to servant-leadership
in the church. They oversee the operational aspects of the
ministry, managing the facility, the finances, and the benevolent
work of the congregation.
A note on email addresses
Even technology has been cursed by sin. That's why in the
addresses above there's no @ sign or a direct email link. People
have created programs that scan websites for addresses so
they can spam us with stock tips and cheap prescription drug
offers. To use any of the email addresses above, simply replace
(at) with @. Thanks for your understanding

Salem is an evangelical church located on the east side of Florissant, MO. We are 30 minutes from downtown St. Louis. Some of the communities
represented in our church include Florissant, Ferguson, Hazelwood, Maryland Heights, and Alton, IL.
Though our church was founded in 1885, we are passionate as ever about the centrality of Jesus Christ and the relevance of His Word. Our purpose is to
glorify God and maximize our joy in Him by growing as a community of fully-devoted followers of Christ. We want to be a church where the truth comes
alive. We seek to be true to God's word and live it out in everyday life.
