Kingwood Bible Church of the Mennonite Brethren Church of North America, located in Salem, Oregon was organized as the Mennonite Brethren Church of West Salem on 13 October 1940 by 27 members of the Mennonite Brethren Church of Dallas, Oregon, who felt the need of a place of worship in Salem. In 1944 the church was enlarged to provide room for the newly organized Salem Bible School and Academy. The name Kingswood Bible Church was adopted in order to reach more people. Pastors who had served the church up to the early 1950s were Abe A. Loewen, Albert Fadenrecht, Alex Sauerwein, and Frank Wiens.

The membership in 1957 was 185.
