The MISSION STATEMENT of The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the Love of God. Its message is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
Is The Salvation Army a church?
Absolutely! We're a Bible-preaching branch of the Christian church, and everything we do is motivated by our faith in Jesus Christ. Our officers (ministers) are pastors who have been ordained as members of the clergy.
Why do some congregants wear uniform?
The wearing of the uniform is one way by which we can express our dedication to Jesus Christ. The uniform also lets those we meet know that a helping hand is available to them.
What do Salvationists believe?
The Salvation Army follows the historical beliefs of the Christian church. Our doctrinal statement (creed) is printed on page 349 of our red Song Book (hymnal).
