Many people do not realize that The Salvation Army is at its heart a worship organization.
The Salvation Army founder William Booth had a heart for those who were not welcome in the “church” during the 1800s in Europe. So he took Church to them.
Booth started by sharing the Word of God on the street corner in London, in a tent ministering to those who were not considered polite society. Then, he realized that in order to feed the souls of the hungry and despairing street denizens of London, he had to also feed their immediate needs.
They were hungry, lost and without shelter. It was hard to preach the beautiful Word of God to those who were struggling just to find a loaf of bread every day.
Thus, how The Salvation Army started its mission of providing for those in need with food, shelter, clothing and compassion.
But, still, at our heart, we are a church dedicated to living out the Gospel every day. We believe in accepting everyone into our church – you don’t have to dress a certain way or have a certain standing in society, we accept everyone from all walks of life.
Brokenness is not something to be ashamed of in The Salvation Army. Much like a broken violin, we still have the ability to be utilized to create beauty.
You don’t have to wear a mask in The Salvation Army… bring your unique self and your broken self and lay your heart at the foot of the cross and allow Christ to restore and reveal the hope and amazing potention in your soul.
