555 Gaines St NE, Salem
This is a Spirit-led church, blessed by God, who is pleased with what His church is doing with His blessings. The Worship Service is different every weekend, yet consistent with the solid biblical Truth, relevant to our times. The message is given by different members of the Pastoral Team. The worship is led by a varying and inclusive group of talented members, providing worship, not performance. This is a successful church that constantly challenges itself to do more for the Kingdom, from bicycle repair ministry and refugee ministry to providing affordable advanced degrees for those who want to move into professional ministry, the best Upper Room prayer location and also a coffee outreach best in the Willamette Valley, and many other and growing ways to help Salem become a city of Peace, with facilities for other churches, community groups, and commerce to come together for the common good, and, of course, missions, missions, missions. It's a Big Church, with five services each weekend, and also has a small church feel by providing Community Groups where members can connect with each other on a weekly gathering basis.
HYPOCRITES This church is even more clickish than others and some of their "leaders" don't appear to know what they are doing and certainly don't care aside from their "performances." Its all so false (with their pretenses) and they treat their volunteers like crap. They are too big for their own good but they have been losing attendance so perhaps they will work harder at solidarity. I've found many other churches here in town that seems to be more genuine but still, more bible thumping politics than anything. This is not Christian or "spiritual in anyway"...
