About The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army's International Mission

The Salvation Army has an international mission statement that sets the identity and direction for every command and centre that the Army operates:

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

Our Vision in the Australian Eastern Territory

We see a Spirit-filled Army of the 21st century convinced of its calling moving forward together into the world of the hurting, broken, lonely, dispossessed and lost, reaching them by all means with the transforming message of Jesus bringing freedom, hope and life.

Our Mission in Australia

The Salvation Army is a Christian movement dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus.

We share the love of Jesus by:

  • Caring for people
  • Creating faith pathway
  • Building healthy communities
  • Working for justice

Our Values

Recognising that God is already at work in the world, we value:

  • Integrity
  • Compassion
  • Respect
  • Diversity
  • Collaboration
  • We commit ourselves in prayer and practice to this land of Australia and its people, seeking reconciliation, unity and equity.

The Salvation Army acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures; and to elders both past and present.
