The Salvation Army
The organisation reports a worldwide membership of over 1. Its founders sought to bring salvation to the poor, destitute, and hungry by meeting both their "physical and spiritual needs".
It is present in countries,  running charity shops , operating shelters for the homeless and disaster relief , and humanitarian aid to developing countries. The theology of the Salvation Army is derived from that of Methodism , although it is distinctive in institution and practice.
A peculiarity of the Army is that it gives its clergy titles of military ranks , such as "lieutenant" or "major". It does not celebrate the rites of Baptism and Holy Communion. However, the Army's doctrine is otherwise typical of holiness churches in the Wesleyan—Arminian tradition. The Army's purposes are "the advancement of the Christian religion In , Booth reorganised the mission, becoming its first General and introducing the military structure which has been retained as a matter of tradition.
The Salvation Army refers to its ministers as "officers". When acting in their official duties, they can often be recognised by the colour-coded epaulettes on their white uniform dress shirts. The epaulettes have the letter S embroidered on them in white.
Promotion in rank up to the rank from Lieutenant to Major depends primarily on years of service. The ordination of women is permitted in the Salvation Army. Salvation Army officers were previously allowed to marry only other officers this rule varies in different countries ; but this rule has been relaxed in recent years. Husbands and wives usually share the same rank and have the same or similar assignments. Such officer-couples are then assigned together to act as co-pastors and administer corps, Adult Rehabilitation Centres and such.
As of the organisation will not appoint homosexual people to posts as ministers, preferring individuals "whose values are consistent with the church's philosophy". The Army has churches located throughout the world. They are known as Salvation Army corps.
They may be implemented as part of a larger community centre. Traditionally, many corps buildings are alternatively called temples or citadels. The Salvation Army is well known for its network of thrift stores or charity shops, colloquially referred to as "the Sally Ann" in Canada, "Salvos Stores" in Australia, and "Sally's" in New Zealand, which raise money for its rehabilitation programs by selling donated used items such as clothing, housewares and toys.
Clothing collected by Salvation Army stores that are not sold on location are often sold wholesale on the global second hand clothing market. The Salvation Army's fundraising shops in the United Kingdom participate in the UK government's Work Programme , a workfare programme where benefit claimants must work for no compensation for 20 to 40 hours per week over periods that can be as long as 6 months.
When items are bought at the Salvation Army thrift stores, part of the proceeds go towards The Salvation Army's emergency reliefs efforts and programs. There are many job opportunities available for them nationwide and are able to move their way up to become a manager or even work in one of their corporate offices. They are unpaid, but they are provided with comfortable room and board. Many ARCs are male-only. The program is primarily to combat addiction.
They work at the warehouse, store or residence. This is referred to as "work therapy". They attend classes, twelve-step programs and chapel services as a part of their rehabilitation. The Army advertises these programs on their collection trucks with the slogan "Doing the Most Good". Donations are consolidated from other stores and donation sites and then sorted and priced and then distributed back out to the branch stores.
Low-quality donated items are sold at the warehouse dock in a "dock sale". Farmland at Hadleigh in Essex was acquired in to provide training for men referred from Salvation Army shelters. It featured market gardens, orchards and two brickfields.
It was mentioned in the Royal Commission report of appointed to consider Poor Laws. The Salvation Army operates summer camps for children, Silvercrest Residences, and adult day care centres. It has headquarter offices internationally, nationally and for each territory and division. Some of the other facilities include: . The official mission statement reads:.
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 the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Early beliefs of the Salvation Army were influenced by a book Helps to Holiness ,  which was to influence spiritual life of the Army for a generation.
The denomination does not celebrate the Christian sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. The International Spiritual Life Commission opinion on Baptism is that enrolment as a Soldier by accepting the call to discipleship should be followed by a lifetime of continued obedient faith in Christ. The mercy seat is a focal point in a Salvation Army Church, symbolising God's call to his people, and a place for commitment and communion, and is available for anyone to kneel at in prayer.
There is no requirement for anyone attending a service to be a member of the Salvation Army in any capacity as a Soldier, Adherent or Officer and services in Salvation Army churches feature a variety of activities: .
Local corps usually sing contemporary worship music songs in Sunday worship services, as well as traditional hymns and music accompanied by the brass band. These are usually from the official Songbook of the Salvation Army. They sometimes use Christian songs in the popular music genre. Many American corps have adopted a mainstream Christian format with video screens showing words to music so that the audience and sing along typical of modern megachurches.
Worship services usually no longer have a traditional brass band. This is reflective for many social and cultural reasons. Often this ensemble consists simply of a guitar, piano or a keyboard, drums and sometimes a bass guitar and other instruments, especially during "Youth Fellowships".
The early Salvation Army bands were known for their excitement and public appeal, and the modern ensemble keeps to this ideology. Traditional hymns are still used in worship services and these are blended with other musical pieces from Christian Music Publishers such as Vineyard Music , Hillsong , and Planet Shakers to name but a few.
The Soldiers Covenant  is the creed of the Salvation Army. All members of the church and congregants are required to subscribe to this creed; every person has to sign the document before they can become enrolled as a Soldier. Positional Statements  describe Salvation Army policy on various social and moral issues, are carefully considered and subject to review.
The Salvation Army opposes euthanasia and assisted suicide. Its official stance on abortion is that "The Salvation Army believes in the sanctity of all human life and considers each person to be of infinite value and each life a gift from God to be cherished, nurtured and redeemed. Human life is sacred because it is made in the image of God and has an eternal destiny. Genesis Sacredness is not conferred, nor can it be taken away by human agreement. This situation represents a special case for the consideration of termination as the violation may be compounded by the continuation of the pregnancy.
However, to advocate in any way the continuance or restoration of capital punishment in any part of the world would be inconsistent with the Army's purposes and contrary to the Army's belief that all human life is sacred and that each human being, however wretched, can become a new person in Christ. In , the Salvation Army published a "Positional Statement on Homosexuality" after receiving adverse publicity about their position on homosexuality.
The Bible teaches that God's intention for humankind is that society should be ordered on the basis of lifelong, legally sanctioned heterosexual unions. A disposition towards homosexuality is not in itself blameworthy nor is the disposition seen as rectifiable at will. Homosexual practice however, is, in the light of Scripture, clearly unacceptable. Such activity is chosen behaviour and is thus a matter of the will.
It is therefore able to be directed or restrained in the same way heterosexual urges are controlled. Homosexual practice would render any person ineligible for full membership soldiership in the Army. In the United States, the Salvation Army's first major forays into disaster relief resulted from the tragedies of the Galveston Hurricane of and the San Francisco earthquake.
The Salvationists' nationwide appeals for financial and material donations yielded tremendous support, enabling the Army to provide assistance to thousands. Today the Salvation Army is best known for its charitable efforts. The Salvation Army is a nongovernmental relief agency and is usually among the first to arrive with help after natural or man-made disasters.
They have worked to alleviate suffering and help people rebuild their lives. After the Indian Ocean tsunami in , they arrived immediately at some of the worst disaster sites to help retrieve and bury the dead. Since then they have helped rebuild homes and construct new boats for people to recover their livelihood.
Members were prominent among relief organisations after Hurricane Hugo and Hurricane Andrew and other such natural disasters in the United States.
In August , they supplied drinking water to poor people affected by the heat wave in the United States. Later in they responded to hurricanes Katrina and Rita. They have helped the victims of an earthquake in Indonesia in May The Army's immediate response to Hurricane Katrina included the mobilisation of more than canteen feeding units and 11 field kitchens which together have served more than 5.
Salvation Army pastoral care counsellors were on hand to comfort the emotional and spiritual needs of , individuals. As part of the overall effort, Salvation Army officers, employees and volunteers have contributed more than , hours of service.
The Salvation Army was one of the first relief agencies on the scene of the September 11 attacks in New York City in They also provided prayer support for families of missing people. The effort that they put in is similar to that of a chaplain, and reaches many more, offering cold drinks, hot drinks, and some biscuits for the soldiers of the military to have, though, if a SallyMan is on deployment, the locals are offered a share in the produce.
These are mobile canteen vehicles  providing food and other welfare to members of the Emergency Services such as bushfires , floods , land search , and other both large- and small-scale emergency operations undertaken by Police, Fire, Ambulance and State Emergency Service members, and the general public affected by these events. Volunteers and officers run the canteen service and the response policy is to respond when emergency services have been on the scene for more than four hours or where four or more Fire vehicles are responding.
The Family Tracing Service sometimes known as the Missing Persons Service was established in , and the service is now available in most of the countries where The Salvation Army operates.
The Tracing Service's objective is to restore or to sustain family relationships where contact has been lost, whether recently or in the distant past. Thousands of people are traced every year on behalf of their relatives.

Religious and ethnic violence between Indonesia's Muslims and Christians escalated dramatically just before and after President Suharto resigned in In this first major ethnographic study of Christianization in Indonesia, Aragon delineates colonial and postcolonial circumstances contributing to the dynamics of these contemporary conflicts. Aragon's ethnography of Indonesian Christian minorities in Sulawesi combines a political economy of colonial missionization with a microanalysis of shifting religious ideology and practice. Fields of the Lord challenges much comparative religion scholarship by contending that religions, like contemporary cultural groups, be located in their spheres of interaction rather than as the abstracted cognitive and behavioral systems conceived by many adherents, modernist states, and Western scholars.
The soldier expresses his or her commitment in every area of life, but more specifically through the ministry and work of a local Salvation Army corps. Salvationist Soldiers are considered by their peers to be covenanted warriors exercising 'holy passion' to win the world for Jesus. There is also a complete book, formerly called the Handbook of Doctrine , reprinted as Salvation Story in , and in became Handbook of Doctrine  available as a free download that explains the doctrines to which the soldier subscribes. The text of the covenant, which is quoted below, reflects the Army's determination to remain faithful to its standards and principles. All Soldiers including officers of all ranks are urged from time to time to re-read the solemn undertakings to which they have set their hand and to reaffirm before God their dedication to Him and to The Salvation Army, so that their lifestyle and service will be in keeping with the Soldier's Covenant. Having completed 'recruits classes', been approved by the Pastoral Care Council and having signed their Articles of War , a soldier is publicly enrolled under The Salvation Army flag usually as part of worship of a Salvation Army corps. The soldier makes a public declaration by reading the articles aloud and will often first wear a Salvation Army uniform on this day.
