Who We Are
The Salvation Army was founded by William Booth as an evangelical mission dedicated to bringing people into a meaningful relationship with God through Christ. Our doctrinal basis is of the Wesleyan-Armenian tradition. We are composed of people who are united by the love of God and man, and who share the common mission of the organization-to motivate all people to embrace the salvation provided to them in Christ. To serve the least, the last and the lost.
The work “army” indicates that we are a fighting force, constantly at war with the powers of evil. Battles are effectively waged through our hands on ministry which gives attention to mind, body and spirit. It is a holistic ministry for the total person.
The Salvation Army beliefs are based on the Holy Bible. Our beliefs are not outdated since they are taken from God’s inspired Word which remains as contemporary today as over 100 years ago.
