What We Believe
Many people see The Salvation Army only as red kettles at Christmastime or a place to drop off used clothing. But, at its very heart, The Salvation Army is a Christian church with a mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. (What is the gospel?) Read our doctrinal statements.
We believe our faith calls us to roll up our sleeves and get to work – to meet the material and emotional needs of a person before we can minister to them spiritually. That’s why our Worship and Service Centers are not only places of Sunday worship for a regular community of believers, but also places that offer social services and community programs to those in need.
Service for All
Despite our record of service, we know rumors of LGBT discrimination persist. Read our response to these false accusations.
