    Defining Salvation

    It’s in our name, but what exactly does it mean?

    As The Salvation Army, yes, we strive to save souls; we cannot compromise on this point.

This is the “salvation for both worlds” of which William Booth wrote in 1890 and of which Scripture speaks. That—and nothing less—is the mission of The Salvation Army.
