Administrative history
The Gospel Light City Mission was begun in the 1950s.

In 1965 they moved to Alexander Avenue and renamed themselves as the Salem MB Church. The changing nature of the inner city residents has meant that methods and emphases have had to be flexible over the years but evangelistic outreach is still the main goal.

The leaders of the congregation were: John Schmidt (1950s), Louise and Rudie Willms (1960–1966), Jacob Balzer (1966–1968), Jake Schmidt (1968–1969), Lena and Arno Fast (1969– ).

The language of worship is English.
