Membership Banner
Membership

Everyone is welcome to attend a Salvation Army corps (church) and be part of our faith community.  Some people choose to make a more formal level of commitments as an Adherent, Soldier or Officer of The Salvation Army.

Membership as an adherent, soldier or officer beings with salvation.  The basis of faith is a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
