Church life - overview

A Salvation Army officerThe Salvation Army is more than a Christian church.

The Salvation Army is a Christian denomination that stands with other mainstream denominations in proclaiming the message that faith in Jesus Christ and the change he brings is the only way to bring about significant change in the life of individuals, communities and nations.

The word `Salvation’ sums up our purpose as a Christian church - a church that has been mobilised like an Army to save people. We really are a Salvation Army! Because of this big vision we have a large variety of ministry centres serving many different needs with ‘heart to God and hand to humanity’.

Our churches, or corps as they are known internally, are a critical aspect of who we are. Check out the links below to find out more about church life in The Salvation Army.
