Welcome to New Salem United Methodist Church


We are thankful that you are visiting the website of New Salem United Methodist Church.  We extend a personal invitation to you and your family to join the people of God here at NSUMC.  We welcome you on the journey to serve as disciples of Jesus Christ with Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors.  We invite you to share your gifts and graces as we worship, serve and fellowship together.

New Salem UMC’s mission is: “Loving, Serving, and Reaching for the Kingdom of God.”  We believe that all people need HOPE.  We are a church located in the Cool Springs community, a part of Statesville, NC, off Highway 64 EAST, sharing God’s love with all people.  We seek to be empowered, equipped and engaged in ministry as God’s people.

United Methodist Christians believe the historic creeds of the church and that the Holy Spirit will reveal the truth of God to each individual.  We do not all have to agree in the way we think.  Our faith is always deepening and growing.  We believe that God is love.  We believe that all people are children of God and equal in God’s sight.  We value diversity and oppose discrimination for any reason.  Our church is “open” to all people.

Our hope and prayer is that you will find New Salem UMC a community of people that will welcome you warmly.  We seek to be a vital church that you can call your spiritual home.  Come join us!

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Keith Franklin, Pastor
