We commit ourselves in prayer and practice to this land of Australia and its people, seeking reconciliation, unity and equity. 

Our Purpose

The Salvation Army lives out its mission through diverse, unified expressions across Australia. We achieve our goals through a culture of courageous stewardship; committed to leadership and delivering innovative and progressive services within a financially sustainable framework. We know we are succeeding when we see people empowered beyond their circumstances.

You can find The Salvation Army in city streets, on rural farms and in suburban centres. Our people are on the ground day and night, bringing hope to those who need it most:

  • Hope for people who are homeless or escaping violence.
  • Hope for people trapped in addiction or battling mental illness.
  • Hope for people affected by disasters or financial troubles.
  • Hope for anyone feeling hopeless.

Together that’s what we are – a group of people united by faith and motivated by a message of hope.

Our Mission Internationally

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

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.
