When I’ve asked folks, “what do you know about The Salvation Army?” many respond they are aware of our thrift stores, the kettles at Christmas and our disaster work. When I share with them all of the other programs we offer as well as the fact that we are a church, everyone is surprised, including myself when I first came on board as an employee. I had no idea that this amazing organization had services every Sunday in Corps (churches) all over the world. From Kuwait to Japan, Haiti to Chile, Iceland to Russia, Africa to the USA! In 122 countries Christ is preached and lives are changed on a daily basis. Our founder, William Booth once stated, “No one ever accepted Christ on an empty stomach.” As he ministered to those who were homeless on London’s streets, he understood that he must first clean the body which meant he would provide soap and fresh clothes to wear. Next he would feed their body with warm homemade soups. Then once they felt more human and were well fed, he would share the gospel and feed their soul; let them know there is a God who loves them so much that He sent His only Son down to earth to die for us on a cross. To sacrifice His life so that we may truly live!
Since 1865, The Salvation Army has been ministering to the lost, the searching, the curious, the hurt, the angry, the lonely, the oppressed, the addicted and the broken and as a result thousands of lives have been impacted, redirected, empowered and loved.
