"Thy Word is Truth" -John 17:17

About Truth Baptist Church 


Truth Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church located in West Salem, Ohio.  Our church facilities are located on a beautiful 20+ acre campus which includes open tabernacles and a lake (see below). We are easily accessible from many areas such as Ashland, Lodi, Medina and Cleveland. Truth Baptist Church is located off of I-71 at exit 196.   

There are more than 15,000 independent Baptist churches in America and at least 10,000 independent Baptist missionaries serving on mission fields worldwide.

Every independent Baptist church is an autonomous congregation. We are self- governing and self-supporting. The head of the church is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is our sole authority for faith and practice. It is our desire to be a truly New Testament church.

At Truth Baptist Church, though we have one message-the message of the Lord Jesus Christ, and one ministry-the ministry He has given us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, the church is also the home of several other ministries.
