What is The Salvation Army?
 
The Salvation Army is a worldwide evangelical Christian church with its own distinctive governance and practice. The Army's doctrine follows the mainstream of Christian belief and its articles of faith emphasize God's saving purposes.
 
Its religious and charitable objects are ‘the advancement of the Christian religion ... and, pursuant thereto, the advancement of education, the relief of poverty, and other charitable objects beneficial to society or the community of mankind as a whole'.

Our Mission Statement
 
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.

 Ministries
 
As part of a diverse world-wide Christian movement, we are to be found ministering in local communities. The Salvation Army Caribbean Territory has been present in the Caribbean for over 125 years and has become and integral component to many communities and their development.
 
Believing that the Christian faith should not just be good for yourself, but also for those around you we make it our aim to demonstrate a practical application of faith through day-to-day community programmes.
 
The work of The Salvation Army in the Caribbean ranges from companionship clubs for the elderly through to nurturing groups with babies.
 
Please feel free to participate in any of our activities at The Salvation Army center nearest you!
 
 
EMERGENCY DISASTER SERVICE
 
Whether it be a local incident or a major disaster, Salvation Army staff and volunteers are often the first on the scene and the last to depart, honoring a century-old commitment to serve those in need, at the time of need, and at the place of need.
 
Disasters come in many forms, both natural and manmade-always devastating to those involved. The Salvation Army is always on the scene because of its every day presence in communities across the country.
 
With that constant awareness of people's needs, The Salvation Army is often among the first on the scene when disaster strikes. Our personnel are trained to meet all kinds of emergencies by providing food, shelter, clothing and spiritual comfort. Disaster canteens (mobile feeding trucks) have become familiar sights to firemen, policemen and victims alike. Hot and cold drinks, soup, sandwiches, and complete meals fill vital needs when homes are destroyed and people are hungry.
The Salvation Army works with emergency management personnel and many other organizations to form a cooperative team during such difficult times. Each year, millions of volunteers come forward during disasters to give their time and effort when it is needed most.
 
The red shield continues to be a beacon of compassion; of immediatte aid, psychological support and spiritual counsel to individuals and families whose lives have been disrupted or shattered by forces beyond their control.
Salvation Army disaster response teams, coordinated and directed by commissioned officers and trained personnel, supported by volunteers, are "on call" to serve at all disasters and civil disorders which place a community or its populace at risk or which may disrupt or destroy family security and well-being.
