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 the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
Throughout the Carolinas, Salvation Army Officers serve primarily as clergy at Salvtion Army Worship Centers. These churches are at the center of the Army Ministry. In fact, when the Army begins ministry in a new city, one of the first steps is to begin to form a congregation.
Salvation Army Churches, known as corps, are made up of congregations of soldiers (church members) and adherants. These congregations meet regularly on Sunday mornings, typically at 11:00am and many have other meeting times throughout the week.
The Salvation Army is considered a protestant denomination of the Christian Church with beliefs that are in line with the mainstream of Christian belief. Salvation Army Officers are ordained ministers that can perform marriages and dedicate children and who regularly provide ministerial duties for their congregations.
Each congregation is unique, while maintaining the basic facets of Salvation Army service. In all cases, these congregations are welcoming loving places and would love to have you visit them anytime. For more information, please check with the locations menu above or call 704-522-4970.
