SBC Core Values

Our Core Values Are As Follows:

  1. We value the truthfulness, trustworthiness, and authority of the Bible; therefore we are committed to use it to constantly affirm God’s direction for our lives and our church as we navigate through all of life’s challenges, and all of the changes which we will face. (2 Timothy 2:15)
  2. We value relevant preaching and teaching of the Word of God. (Mark 3:14)
  3. We value strong pastoral leadership for the purpose of encouraging and inspiring worship and fellowship. (Ephesians 4:10-12)
  4. We value the biblical tithe and believe each Salem Bible Church member should commit to give at least one tenth of his/her income in response to the leading of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the Word of God. (Malachi 3:10)
  5. We value the spiritual discipline of prayer, fasting and Bible study and each Salem Bible Church member should be taught how to develop personal daily intimacy with Christ. (Ezra 7:10; Daniel 9:3)
  6. We value lay leadership and believe laymen should serve with confidence; therefore we are committed to training lay leaders for effective leadership and service. (Numbers 27:18)
  7. We value Christian Education as the foundational ministry that under girds all other ministries in the local church. (Acts 17:11)
  8. We value discipleship and spiritual growth, which should be accomplished through Bible study, Sunday school, and small group ministries. (1 Peter 2:2)
  9. We value the identification and awareness of each member’s passion and spiritual gifts for ministry, which is the key to effective ministry and service. (1 Corinthians 12:4)
  10. We value innovation, creativity, and excellence. (Philippians 1:10)
