The Salvation Army

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army grew out of a Methodist outreach in England during the late 1800s. It was intended to bring the gospel to the poor and was therefore, the combination of a traditional denomination and a traditional service organization. It has a military structure with a Methodist theology. They call their members soldiers and their leaders have titles similar to that in the army. This denomination is known for its social works particularly provision of social aid during disasters and operating charity stores and other services. The Soldier's Covenant is where the Salvation Army's eleven doctrines can be read.
