The Salvation Army is about people finding freedom
It's a pretty broad statement, but we're a pretty diverse bunch. Across the country, we're engaged with every demographic and every age group.
We're active in the big cities, the country towns and even outback cattle stations.You’ll find us involved in national issues and you’ll also find us one-on-one in your local cafe.
Regardless of where we are or what we're doing, one thing always remains true: we're about people finding freedom.
Freedom from fear. Freedom from neglect. Freedom from poverty and addiction.
Freedom to dream. Freedom to love. Freedom to make a difference.
Freedom to live life to the full.
We believe in freedom through community
We believe in the power of community. People loving other people, and people helping other people.
Those who ‘have’ sharing generously – sacrificially – with those who don’t. People finding acceptance, encouragement, healing and support without discrimination. We believe no-one should have to ‘go it alone’.
Our goal is to be community builders, not just service providers. We don’t give up on people – not only responding to immediate needs but journeying with people for the long haul, helping them to find freedom and stay free as well.
We believe in freedom through action
We’re not afraid to get our hands dirty to help secure freedom for others.
If the environment is unpleasant, we’ll still go. If the task seems impossible, we’ll try anyway. We’re convinced that freedom is for everybody. No exceptions.
We see ourselves as a movement rather than an institution – inspiring, equipping and inviting people from all walks of life to join the fight and be part of helping secure freedom for someone else.
We believe in freedom through faith
We believe that true freedom encompasses body, mind and spirit.
Our faith convinces us that hope, purpose and fulfilment can be everyone’s story.
Our freedom journey started with Jesus, and he continues to be the foundation, inspiration and driving force of everything we do. We believe Jesus was, is, and always will be about people finding freedom.
