Resources to Build Your Faith


The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte wants to help you build a foundation of faith with resources like church services, devotions, prayer requests, and encouragement on the go.

Salvation Army Churches

Charlotte is home to two Salvation Army Worship Centers (known as Corps), Temple Corps and Belmont Avenue Corps. These churches are at the center of the Army Ministry. At our Salvation Army Worship Centers, people from all walks of life find healing and a sense of family. Everyone is welcome.

Salvation Army Officers serve primarily as clergy at Salvation Army Worship Centers. Salvation Army Officers are ordained ministers that can perform marriages and dedicate children and who regularly provide ministerial duties for their congregations. Come worship with us!

The Corps worship centers are dedicated to our founder’s mission to bring hope and healing to people from all walks of life. Worship centers offer programs for the entire family, including youth and adult ministry and social services.

A divine encounter at the bus station in Charlotte changed Lisa’s life forever.


Weary from years of homelessness and sleeping on friends’ couches, she had come to Charlotte to seek help from her son. Over the years, she had suffered from depression and even attempted suicide. An alcohol addiction led her down a dangerous path – one that eventually landed her in a hospital fighting for her life. In that hospital room, Lisa had an awakening.

Our Mission

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical, protestant denomination of the Christian church, with beliefs that are in line with mainstream Christian theology. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

Our Beliefs

These eleven doctrines set out the formal beliefs of The Salvation Army, though it is worth noting that all are welcome at Salvation Army centers, regardless of belief.

  • We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, and that they only constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice.
  • We believe that there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship.
  • We believe that there are three persons in the Godhead - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory.
  • We believe that in the person of Jesus Christ the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man.
  • We believe that our first parents were created in a state of innocency, but by their disobedience, they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall, all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has by His suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.
  • We believe that repentance toward God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary to salvation.
  • We believe that we are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself.
  • We believe that continuance in a state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ.
  • We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the body, in the general judgement at the end of the world, in the eternal happiness of the righteous, and in the endless punishment of the wicked.
