New Salem VR Experience -



Daring Faith is the newest and most progressive spiritual growth campaign that we have launched at New Salem Baptist Church. 

Our simple definition of daring faith is “the courage to do something so tremendous that it will fail unless God is involved”. We believe that the exponential growth is rooted in exponential thinking.  Therefore, our daring faith is exhibited through our DARING Goals (listed below).  Take some time to learn more about this amazing opportunity to exercise daring faith by making a commitment to courageous stewardship and service.

In order to fully partake of the richness of Daring Faith you will need to participate in a CARE Group. You have the option of connecting with one of our existing CARE Groups or you can start a new group. Your faith can also be enhanced by using the ”Dare-A-Day” devotional. 

We invite you to join us on this transformative journey! We are excited to witness the many ways that Daring Faith will strengthen our trust in God’s plan for our individual lives as believers and our collective destiny as a Community of Caring.
