The Salvation Army Australia
The Salvation Army is about people finding freedom. It's a pretty broad statement, but they're a pretty diverse bunch. Across the country they're engaged with every demographic and every age group.
They're active in the big cities, the country towns and even outback cattle stations.You’ll find them involved in national issues and you’ll also find them one-on-one in your local cafe.
Regardless of where they are or what they're doing, one thing always remains true: they'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.
They believe in freedom through community
They 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. They believe no-one should have to ‘go it alone’.
Their goal is to be community builders, not just service providers. They 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.
The Salvation Army is a Christian movement dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus.
They share the love of Jesus by:
Caring for people
Creating faith pathway
