The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Salem Baptist Church adheres to the Great Commission of “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15). We have a mission to perform: taking the gospel into all the world. The mission field begins at home, right here in Goochland. It extends to the place where we work and where we play. It also involves taking the message of Jesus Christ throughout the nation and into distant lands, where people speak different languages and have different customs.
The missionaries we support we know personally. We know their manner of life and the work they do. As we give to these mission works, we are taking part in fulfilling this great commission Jesus gave to his Church.
Additionally, Salem supports sending agencies like the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board.
Listed below is a list of ministries that Salem Baptist Church supports.
Good News Club® is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools, homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, just about anywhere the children can easily and safely meet with their parent’s permission. Each week the teacher presents an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from CEF Press. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme.

Rev. Richard (Ric) and Jane Taylor are a lot of things. They are parents, grandparents, friends, Christ-followers, encouragers, Bible teachers, and overcomers. Most importantly, they are missionaries with a capital “M”. At an age when most people are considering retirement, Ric and Jane embraced the call to become career missionaries. Now into their third decade of missions, they have invested their lives in the people of Kenya, East Africa. When no organization would appoint them, because they were “too old,” and Ric was “too sick,” (and this was 23 years ago) they did the only thing their hearts would let them do-they sold all they had and used the money to move to Africa.
In the last 20+ years, they have established feeding programs during years of drought that fed thousands of children, built medical clinics and schools, and ministered in the hospitals (Although neither has a medical background). Jane has become a permanent fixture as a counselor, chaplain, and encourager in the Nairobi Hospital operating room. They have shown the Jesus Film to tens of thousands, many of whom have come to faith in Christ and become primary encouragers to the Redeemed Gospel Fellowship of churches in the Machakos district. Now, as they strive to faithfully finish their course in Kenya, they have become fixtures in the village of Kakayuni, where they have bought land and are building a road and digging a well to prepare for a technical school God has called them to build.
