The mission of the Salem Missionary Baptist Church Deacons’ Wives is one of service to our Lord and Savior. This service shall be carried out by ministering to both the believer and the unbeliever. We will faithfully execute all assigned duties. We will aid in developing and enhancing the spiritual lives of other women as we live respectably before our God. We will enrich the lives of the members of Salem through prayer, support and by faithfully supporting our husbands in their office of deacon. We will assist in the ordinances of baptism and communion as ordained and commanded by Christ. We will be reverent, not participating in malicious gossip, temperate and faithful in all things (1 Timothy 3.11).
