When fiery Methodist evangelist William Booth decided in 1865 that he could no longer preach the Christian Gospel to the poor and wretched of England unless he also put food into their stomachs, he probably did not imagine that the movement he started would grow into a worldwide organisation. Today, nearly 150 years later, The Salvation Army is trusted and recognised throughout the globe, providing a unique blend of evangelism and service to people in more than 120 countries through 175 languages. Our worldwide evangelical Christian church has its own distinctive governance and practice following the mainstream of the Christian faith, with articles of faith that emphasise God’s saving purposes. Booth’s simply philosophy of “Heart to God, hand to man” remains as vital and relevant in our society today as it was all those years ago, and continues to guide the work of our organisation. Our special concern for the poor, the neglected and the marginalised, and our determination to uphold social justice is motivated by our love of God.
