Doctrines of The Salvation Army


1.       We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, and that they only constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice.

2.       We believe that there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship.

3.       We believe that there are three persons in the Godhead - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory.  

4.       We believe that in the person of Jesus Christ the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man. 

5.       We believe that our first parents were created in a state of innocence, but by their disobedience, they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall, all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God.

6.       We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has by His suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.

7.       We believe that repentance toward God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary to salvation.

8.       We believe that we are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself.

9.       We believe that continuance in a state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ.   

10.     We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.    

11.     We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the body, in the general judgment at the end of the world, in the eternal happiness of the righteous, and in the endless punishment of the wicked.

CAMP ALLEGHENY: is a residential camp operated by the Salvation Army Western Pennsylvania Division.

COMMUNITY AWARENESS: is something we strive to achieve in the Allegheny Valley Corps. We accept donations of food, clothing, toys and money to help our Christmas effort.

Few organizations are more dependent on their boards or advisory organizations than The Salvation Army. As the Army has grown to be the oldest and largest service organization of its kind, it has also become increasingly complex. Its unique structure, diverse relationships, and multiplicity of programs have added to its complex nature. This is further compounded by the confidence placed upon the organization by the general public with its increasing demands to undertake a variety of additional community services. The Salvation Army wisely concluded many years ago that these responsibilities were beyond the capabilities of its officers to manage without significant support from local community leaders.

Advisory boards are absolutely essential in the work and acceptance of The Salvation Army in the communities in which they serve. These boards are no longer simply helpful to The Salvation Army, but are imperative to the work, progress, and life of it. The wisdom of involving key, influential leaders of the community in the work of the Army is obvious, and has proved itself many times over.

The continuity of The Salvation Army’s work in a community is largely dependent upon the strength of the advisory board. The Salvation Army needs the wisdom, involvement and support of its advisory organizations. When consideration is given to the complexity of community needs, changing funding trends, increased government relationships, all complicated by the growing imposition of conflicting moral philosophies, it is critical that The Salvation Army be supported by strong, loyal, and involved advisory boards.
