the church at Salem
 in exile 


The  first  church  in  America  
court  ordered  under  color  of  law  to  be  seized  for  
refusing  to  incorporate  with  the  beast  state

(Seized the 24th day of pagan March, 2005)

From the Christ’s Lawful assembly,
formerly sojourning at Salem, New Jersey...

Greetings to all who come to this website 
seeking truth in the Name of Yeshua Christ Jesus.

And the sheep hear His voice: and He calleth His own sheep by name,
and leadeth them out.  ...He goeth before them, and the sheep follow Him:
for they know His voice.  And a stranger will they not follow...
Jesus the Christ (John 10:3,4 and 5)



                               Sometimes you just have to stand up to the bully.

  We are the church at Salem in exile

       Occasionally we are asked about the mission and purpose of the church at Salem.  And, on occasion, we have been told by people that life would be much easier for us if     we would just act like other churches.  No doubt they are right about that.  In fact, on 03-24-05, in a tape recorded meeting just moments before the church was seized by Counter Terrorism Agents and the pastor and his wife were arrested on criminal charges, Salem mayor, Earl R. Gage and his lawyer David J. Puma told us plainly that if we had only incorporated like the 34 other churches in Salem, they would have recognized us as a real church and left us alone.  In other words, if we had only handed our “lunch money” over to the Beast state bully everything would have been OK.

Causæ ecclesiæ publicis causis æquiparantur.
”The cause of the church is a public cause.”
          From the beginning, the mission and purpose of the church at Salem was made clear by the Lord to those of us He was calling out of the 501 (c) (3) corporate, State church system.  We were literally to be a “peculiar people” in that we were commanded not to mingle Christ with the secular State by incorporating under it as a so-called “fictional” or “artificial entity”.  Learning how to function as a real, local ekklesia (the church in Law) was our primary Calling, and of that Righteous Mandate we were certain.  

      Early on, we came to refer to that which the Lord was endeavoring to Establish in our little community of resolute believers as “the actual and literal” Lordship of Jesus the Christ.  And so, just as the 1st and 2nd  Century church did, we were “living Christ” on a daily basis there at Salem.   Even though we were being harassed by the local government on a regular and systematic basis, still it was an exciting and wonderful time for Us.   

        Inseparable from this radical concept of real Christianity, a coherent local government in accordance to Isaiah 9:6 was beginning to emerge - that was what really scared the local authorities.  And although very few of those who were watching Us understood what they were looking at, still we continued to exercise our gift and Calling in the body of Christ as one of the “differences of administration” spoken of at I Corinthians 12:5.  What a wonderful joy it was to discover the purpose for which we had been created - to proclaim the actual and literal Lordship of Jesus the Christ.  

        Then, after a six year struggle spearheaded by local government cronies, the hammers of Hell came down on Us.  On 03-24-05, in blatant violation of the First Amendment and every published law prohibiting mandatory church incorporation, the church at Salem was seized for refusing to incorporate (become yoked) with the Beast state.  

     Subsequently, the mission and purpose of those who are now the church at Salem in exile, has     become a mission of telling our story by whatever means the Lord through His grace would make     available, so that our brothers and sisters in Christ who are currently asleep in the Corporate Matrix       may  awaken  from  their  slumber  to  learn  the  insidious  truth  about  church  incorporation.    

      Our video documentary  Seized for Refusing to Incorporate! is a thorough and at times disturbing account of our personal story which has taken us nearly three years to produce.  As a witness to the truth in Christ to the events which occurred at Salem, our documentary is now available for viewing here on our website.  Also, for those who would like to have a copy on dvd, we will be happy to send them one.  

      Although we certainly welcome whatever gifts you may be led of the Lord to offer us (see “Gifts” in Directory), our DVD will not be for sale, but rather, as we are led by the Spirit of God, they will be given away freely for it is written: “Freely ye have receive, freely give” - Matthew 10:8  
     After visiting our website and viewing our documentary we invite you to contact the church at Salem  for fellowship in Christ.  Although we hope to respond individually to every email we receive, we cannot say how long that will take, and so we ask for your patience.    

      Thank you for visiting our website as we earnestly pray for all who are led here: that the Spirit of         God would stir in their hearts an unquenchable hunger for the actual and literal Lordship of Jesus the Christ - The Most High God - our Sovereign Lord, Saviour and King.

May the grace, love and mercy of our Lord and Sovereign be with you all,

William Raymond: ambassador for the Christ in exilium

To our brothers and sisters in the counterfeit 
501 (c) (3) corporate “state church” system of the Beast...
The information you’re about to discover at this website will be contrary to many of the things 
you’ve been mislead to accept - either consciously or subconsciously - concerning the Kingdom 
of God and Lordship of Jesus the Christ.  If you are personally offended by what you read 
here, while there is a reason for that, there is surely no excuse (John 16:1).  For here
[and in other place like this] the Father is awakening His holy remnant to
embrace and walk in fundamental truths about His Lordship which are 
either ignored or rejected by all the incorporated, institutional 
churches who, via their corporate status, have willingly
 chosen to live, move and have their being in the 
Beast state rather than in Christ. 

While we count it an honor that the Father has directed you to our website 
we would also remind you of your obligation as a believer to hold all things to the 
Divine Standard of Scripture and to bring to our attention anything 
you find at this website you believe to be contrary thereto. 

And so, we adjure you to cast off the traditions of men which render the Word of God
 “of non effect” and enter the Kingdom via our Sovereign Lord, Christ Jesus who alone is the 
Way, the Truth and the Life and, indeed, the Door to that glorious Kingdom.

By the grace of God, there have been

Fictio cedit Veritati. Fictio juris non est ubi Veritas. 
“Fiction yields to Truth.  Where Truth is, fiction of law exists not.”

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.
Jesus the Christ at John 14:6
