The Salvation Army is an international movement, and our Women's Ministries branch has had a vital reimagining of what ministry to women could look like around the world. Our new international vision statement was launched in February 2020 and is outlined below. The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa Territory is on board! Will you join us?
The Salvation Army International Women's Ministries' Vision Statement:
We envision women who are:
Transformed and empowered by the gospel to lead a Christlike life
Enriched mutually through local and global connections and support
Equipped to fulfil their potential through lifelong learning and development
Engaged in social justice and action to positively impact the world

As disciples, we are called to go into all the world and express the good news of Jesus Christ, both in word and in deed. This final point is the outward expression of the inward work of the previous three points. Our desire is to:
This point could be supported through advocacy, ethical living, acts of kindness, local community ministries, participation in national and local conversations and support of non-discriminatory legislation.
