Who We Are
An Army Willing to Do the Most Good
The Salvation Army is a church and ministry whose mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human need in His name without discrimination. Its leaders are officers in The Salvation Army corps and ordained ministers who lead with integrity and bravery. Its members are called soldiers, and they are committed to the fight. What fight? The fight for souls! Founder William Booth's famous battlecry was this:
“While women weep, as they do now,
While little children go hungry, as they do now,
While men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now,
While there is a drunkard left,
While there is a poor lost girl upon the streets,
While there remains one dark soul without the light of God,
I'll fight-I'll fight to the very end!”
Our Mission: To Meet Human Need in His Name Without Discrimination
The compassion that drove William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army, still drives us today. In John 13:35 Jesus says, “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” That love sometimes takes the form of giving food to a hungry family or providing shelter to the homeless. Sometimes it means visiting a lonely resident in a nursing home. Other times it means sharing the hope which is only found in Jesus Christ. Wherever there is human need in the counties we serve, we will do our best to meet it.
Local donations, contributions, and our community partners allow us to offer effective programs such as our emergency shelter and feeding program, our youth and senior programs, and a utility assistance program.
Become a part of The Salvation Army. Together, we can make a difference.
