Bus Ministry

Serving children and families in the Decatur area.

The Bus Ministry is one of the most crucial outreach ministries at SBC. Each week, Salem picks up dozens of adults and children who do not have transportation of their own. Every bus is well-maintained, driven by CDL licensed drivers, and routinely inspected by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The Bus Ministry provides a safe and reliable way for people of all ages all across Decatur to come to church and worship with God’s family.

Salem's Pantry

Free food for the hungry in our community.

Salem’s Pantry is the food ministry of SBC. It enables us to freely provide food, toiletries, and other household products to those in need. Carefully stocked and maintained by volunteers at Salem, the pantry exists to help the hungry and show them the love of Christ in a tangible way. Please contact the church office at 217-422-4274 if you would like to donate or if you would like to schedule an appointment at Salem’s Pantry.


Worldwide Missions

Supporting God's Ambassadors

The missions program at Salem Baptist Church is growing. In 2016, we held our first official Missions Conference: "Missions 101." In 2017, we took "The Next Step" in missions involvement as a church. We currently provide prayer and monthly financial support to twenty-eight missionaries worldwide.

The following list of missionaries and their countries of calling contains links to the families' websites whenever available. Salem Baptist Church actually supports a few more missionaries that are not listed below (due to the clandestine nature of their deployment in hostile countries).
