Heroes of Old

At Salem Chapel, we do not regard some people as saints in the traditional sense of the word- perfect people performing miracles after their deaths and whose body parts (relics) bestow merit on those still on earth. We accept the Biblical definition of saint which is any Christian.

Nevertheless, in the summer of 2015, we broke from our usual pattern of Bible Study to examine the life and doctrines of some of the heroes of the Christian faith. They were imperfect people, who wrestled with sin and temptation like us all. We can however learn from their lives and times.

The more we covered, the more cramped this page became. Please therefore hover over the Heroes button and see a drop down menu of heroe by period.
