Mission and Values Statement

The Salvation Army is an international Christian church and charitable movement, active in over 128 countries worldwide. Its message is based on the Bible; its ministry is motivated by love for God and the needs of humanity. The Mission of The Salvation Army is to share the love of Jesus Christ, meet human needs, and be a transforming influence in the communities of our world. This is expressed in spiritual ministry, and also by a wide variety of social services, which are extended without discrimination as to race or creed.

There are three Core Values of our Faith: Salvation, Holiness, and Intimacy with God.

Rooted in these three values are the seven core operational values that guide all aspects of the Salvation Army in the Canada & Bermuda Territory.

Compassion:      We reach out to others and care for them.

Respect:              We promote the dignity of all persons.

Excellence:         We strive to be the best at what we do and a model for others to emulate.

Integrity:             We are honest, trustworthy and accountable.

Relevance:          We are committed to the pursuit of innovation and effectiveness.

Co-operation:    We encourage and foster teamwork and partnerships.

Celebration:       We give thanks by marking milestones and successes.

The powerful mission and core values of The Salvation Army serve as significant attractors for those people who choose to join the organization, which has been serving the under-served and evolving for 150 years.
