Our Story

Salem Full Gospel, Bothasig? I’m often asked what does Salem mean?
The answer - PEACE!

We need peace. Peace of God that passes all understanding but also peace with God. Peace with God can only be found in trusting Jesus Christ as Saviour. Peace is found in making Jesus @ Home in our lives.

John 14:23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”

Oh! And by the way Salem Full Gospel Church is part of the church Denomination Full Gospel Church of God in Southern Africa.

Salem was founded by Pastor Hensie Vroom in 1972. The building was dedicated to the Lord in 1974.
