Intimacy With The Holy Spirit

There can never be true spirituality without a personal intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. We are committed to raising pastors, leaders and a people who personally know the Holy Spirit. Not as a theology, but in their personal experiences. Any notable, remarkable and mighty acts and ministry in life are a direct reflection of the presence, the power and the blessings of the Holy Spirit.

Practical Peace And Holiness

Salem means peace. This is our Jesus – centered heritage. We are committed to raising a people who are committed to a life style of peace and holiness. This is how to serve the Lord here on earth and see God practically. Hebrews 12:14 says; “Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:”

Faith And Wisdom

Practical spirituality forms the bedrock of our very existence. We are raising people who are strong in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ. A people committed to a life of faith that pleases the Lord. Hebrews 11:6 says; “But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
