About Us

     New Salem Baptist Church of Monroe, North Carolina, was founded in 1862.  We are a body of believers committed to worshiping and serving Jesus Christ.  As a Bible-believing Baptist church, we join with like-minded Christians in spreading the Gospel around the world.  We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, and the Union Baptist Association. 

     Christ reached out to people of all ages and backgrounds, and at New Salem Baptist Church we desire to do the same.  That is why you will discover here ministries geared to various life stages and needs.  That is why we have a place for everyone to study the Scriptures, fellowship together, and minister to others through numerous service opportunities.

     We want you to be a part of His blessings in the life of our church. We'll bring you updates often on just what's happening at New Salem Baptist Church and share the stories of how Christ is making a difference in people's lives.
