Who We Are

Salem Lutheran Church is a faith community that has been gathering in Lenexa for over 135 years. We are part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and we have come to understand that our mission is to Encounter God, Grow in Faith, and Serve the World.

Although we have been around for over 135 years, Salem is a faith community that is not focused on the past. We are constantly seeking to experience God in new and exciting ways, and we believe that we exist not to be served, but to serve wherever we are called. We are constantly asking how God might be calling us into his mission in this world.

Vision Statement: Salem is a vibrant body of Christ devoted to engaging and impacting the community by loving all people, serving those in need, and developing spiritual maturity.

Welcome Statement: We, the members of Salem Lutheran Church, affirm the belief that we are all created in God’s image and are called to love one another as God loves us. We are a community that welcomes people of all ages, cultures, economic statuses, ethnic backgrounds, family blends, gender identities, physical and mental abilities, races, and sexual orientations. We seek to provide a safe and caring community where all people can grow in their faith. We encourage you to join us as we develop relationships with each other and discover the depth of God’s love for us all.
