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.

Programs:

WOMENS MINSTRIES(Home League):is a personal improvement program for all women ages 16 and up. The women meet weekly to focus on one of the four program elements: Worship, Education, Fellowship and service.

MEN’S FELLOWSHIP CLUB: is a personal improvement program for men ages 16 and up. They meet  the 3rd Sunday of each month for meetings and twice a month for activities.  

BIBLE STUDY: is open to the public. We have a well-balanced Bible Study for all ages  that will renew and feel the soul.

CORP CADETS: is a teen bible study for children 13-18 years old.

BOYS ADVENTURE CLUB: is a “troop” based program much like Boys Scouts for boys 6-18. With two classes Explorers(6-11) and Rangers (12-18).

MOONBEAMS (5-6) SUNBEAMS(7-10) / GIRL GUARDS(11-18): are social development programs comparable to the “brownies” and “Girl Scout” groups. The girls study and participate in activities to earn badges. These studies prepare the girls to be contributing members to society in the future. Keeping active with learning prevents them from being “at risk” citizens to society.

TEEN CLUB: a fun program where teens fellowship together WEEKLY. Call for details.

COMMUNITY CARE MINSTRIES: (trips the 1st and 3rd Sundays) Provides an opportunity to share love. They visit nursing and rest homes, as well as individuals that are shut-in and live on their own. The children who are starting young at Sharing & Caring for the sick and elderly by singing, visiting and sharing their time, energy and of course lots of hugs! 

SUMMER PROGRAMS: - Call for details

CAMP ALLEGHENY: is a residential camp operated by the Salvation Army Western Pennsylvania Division. Every summer, 50-60 kids from New Kensington, Kiski Valley and surrounding areas area spend a week at camp. They have time for recreation and swimming. In addition, children have a variety of classes to choose from such as music, nature, sports, home life, Bible and so much more!

DAY CAMP – The Salvation Army New Kensington offers a weekday summer day camp program for school age kids registration begins in April

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. We also worked with the local Rotary and have become a member of the Chamber of Commerce to provide new avenues to serve the public.

Advisory Board

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.
