Our Mission

A Salvation Army officer

Part of The Salvation Army's mission involves meeting human need wherever it occurs - without discrimination.

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

The international mission statement of The Salvation Army is as follows:

"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."

Some territories also have an internal mission statement that conveys the local focus. Here in the Australia Eastern Territory (NSW, ACT, Qld), our mission is to "save souls, grow saints and serve suffering humanity". Our values flow from this - we value Transformation, Integrity and Compassion.
