Evergreen Presbyterian Church
Who We Are
Evergreen Church is a community of Jesus' followers committed to loving Salem, OR. Jesus links us to God's people throughout the centuries, and so our beliefs are not new. They are summarized concisely by the Apostles' Creed from the 4th century. A larger expression is found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, as adopted by our denomination, the Presbyterian Church in America.

Ken R. WilliamsIn my last entry I said if we moved to Salem, Evergreen would be our church. Well, we moved here in August 2020, and we have called it home ever since! My wife and I have been just as pleased in the long-term as we were in the short, and we are quickly becoming a member of the church family in so many ways. The church has worshipped at Cottage and D streets for a number of years and will soon be moving into a larger worship facility at 17th and Nebraska. If you want to see what we are all about without leaving your home, our 9:00 am service is televised over ZOOM each week. But to get the "real feel" come and join us at either 9:00 am or 10:30 am each Sunday. We could not be more pleased with God leading us to this church, and if you are a person who wants to hear the truth of Scripture, the whole truth, preached every Sunday, this just might be the place for you!
Ken R. WilliamsJune 9th was our first day at this church, and we felt at home immediately. We are from Texas where we attend a PCA church, and we got from this church exactly what we get in our home church: the preaching of God's Word without apology! We liked all parts of the service, and we were especially pleased with the expository preaching and the music. Communion was conducted in an intriguing manner (we liked it!), and we found at least a couple of people who were very friendly and informative. Since we are in Salem only for the summer, Evergreen will be our church home while we are in the city. If we were to ever move to Salem, it would be a church permanently!
