How We Are Organized

New Salem's ministry is organized using the Purpose Driven Church model. Once a person becomes a MEMBER, they will seek to MATURE......part of maturity will lead a person to being involved in a MINISTRY in the church. If they become involved in ministry, they can't help but be engaged in a MISSION outside the church. Once they get involved in missions, they can't help but MAGNIFY God.

We believe we are all fomed for God's Family - Membership (Fellowship)

     "Baptizing them" (Matthew 28:19)

We believe we are all created to become like Christ - Maturity (Discipleship)

     "Teaching them to obey all that I command you" (Matthew 28:20)

We believe we are all shaped for serving God - Ministry (Serve)

     "Love your neighbor as yourself" (Matthew 22:39)

We believe we are all made for a mission - Missions (Evangelism)

     "Go therefore and make disciples" (Matthew 28:19)

We believe we are all planned for God's pleasure - Magnification (Worship)

     "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind" (Matthew 22: 37)

We utilize the same structure with our children (infants through fifth grade) in our Promiseland Children's Ministry and our youth (sixth grade through twelfth grade) in our Life Development Department.
