Salem United Church of Christ of Jacobus, Pa dates back to 1842 when the Lutheran and Reformed Churches joined for worship services. This union lasted for 118 years when the Reformed Congregation voted to become the Salem Reformed, which is now the Salem United Church of Christ. The first church service was held in our present sanctuary in 1960. Since that time, the Church has gone through a lot of changes. However, one thing remains the same: the Word of God is preached from the Bible, and everything we do here is to glorify God and not ourselves.
If you are looking for a Church that has a family atmosphere, where you are welcome no matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, then Salem is the place for you. When you enter our Church, you can come as you are. It is our prayer that you are fed spiritually, that your faith is strengthened, and that your relationship with Jesus Christ grows even closer. Our mission is to use the resources and ministries that God has given us to spread the Good News of forgiveness and eternal life in our homes, communities, the nation and the world by being caring servants of God. Here at Salem, we would be honored to have you worship with us and call Salem home.
