Mission Statement

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 love for God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

Overview of Ministry Activity

The Salvation Army, founded in 1865 by William and Catherine Booth, has spread from London, England, to 107 countries of the world. Leadership in the Army is provided by commissioned officers who are recognized ministers of religion.

Raised to evangelize, the Army also embarks on schemes for the betterment of the poor. Evolving social services meet endemic needs and specific crises, co-operating with international relief agencies and governments alike. From homes for women, centers for the destitute, children’s homes, day nurseries, fresh-air camps, clubs and play centers, homes and institutes for the handicapped, family welfare, street children centers, to a variety of schools, the Army ministers to tens of thousands of children worldwide.

The Salvation Army also operates medical centers, does HIV/AIDS education, and provides care for the elderly.  It is recognized as a non-governmental organization in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
