Mennonite pioneers, mostly from Pennsylvania. and Virginia., settled in this area of western Ohio in the early 1800's. The first log cabin church was built here in 1843. After several name changes, the building that would be named the Salem Mennonite Church was built in 1883. Today, the congregation is made up of people from a variety of backgrounds and ages. Our desire is to provide a warm, caring and sharing community from which we are able to minister to the needs of others and be an attractive witness to the love of God.
Our mission is to spread the message of the kingdom of God bringing salvation to others through evangelizing, discipleship, prayer, worship and meeting the needs of others.
Our vision is to create an open friendly community, allowing others to see Jesus through our lives.
