About Us

We are Salem Presbyterian Church

a PC(USA) congregation in East Tennessee

We are a small, family church sitting on the the campus of the Washington College Academy campus in Limestone, TN.  Samuel Doak founded our congregation in 1780 and our building was contructed 1894-1896 and still remains today, with a few modifications of course.  We hold to the traditions and beliefs of the PC(USA) and remain committed to be a part of Holston Presbytery as we connect to the larger church.  Most of our mission work is to our local children and aging adults in the community.  We enjoy being together and are continually learning what it means to be church in the 21st century.
