Home About Us
We're no ordinary army. Since 1883, The Salvation Army has fought poverty and social and spiritual distress in New Zealand. Our mission is to care for people, transform lives and reform society.
We fight with only one weapon - God's love.
The Salvation Army message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by love for God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in his name without discrimination.
The signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840 predates the beginning of The Salvation Army and its arrival in New Zealand in 1883.
The Salvation Army doctrines follow closely the orthodox beliefs of the Protestant Church.
Throughout The Salvation Army each country (or cluster of countries) is structured as a 'territory' or a 'command', with one person appointed territorial/command leader by the General.
The Soldier's Covenant text reflects the Army's determination to remain faithful to its standards and principles.
The Salvation Army prepares Positional Statements that briefly state the view of the organisation on moral or social issues.
