The Salvation Army is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Our message is based on the Bible, our ministry is motivated by the love of God and our mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ as we meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Every program we offer is rooted in our passion to serve God by serving the lost, the vulnerable, the needy, the poor, the hurting, the helpless and the hopeless.
The Salvation Army is a worldwide church, and our Corps Community Centers provide church services and act as community hubs for spiritual development through a multitude of programs. These programs range from providing a sanctuary for quiet prayer, worship services and Sunday School to Bible study groups, Women's Ministries, Men's Fellowships, music & instruction, and character building programs for children.
What is a "Corps"?
Many of The Salvation Army's program centers are called Corps Community Centers. Using a military metaphor, each Corps is both a church and community center. They offer worship services for any who choose to attend as well as operate programs that meet the various needs of their local community. They are centers of program activity for youth, adults, and the elderly. They are places for those in need to find material assistance, spiritual growth, or fellowship. The people you find at our Corps are a cross section of any given community—all are welcome.
