Membership - Salvation Army Canada

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. 

HELPFUL DEFINITIONS

Adherent: A member of The salvation Army who has not made a commitment to soldiership. Adherents are Christians who consider a local Salvation Army corps to be their church home, and want to support its vitality through their presence and involvement.

Junior Soldier: A boy or girl up to the age of 18, who has accepted Jesus as their Saviour and signed the Junior Soldier's Promise. More about Junior Soldiers.

Soldier: A converted person at least 14 years of age who has, with the approval of the senior pastoral care council, been enrolled as a member of The Salvation Army after signing the Soldier's Covenant.

Soldier's Covenant: The statement of beliefs and promises which every intending soldier is required to sign before enrolment. 

Corps: A Salvation Army unit established for the preaching of the gospel, worship, teaching and fellowship and to provide Christian-motivated service to the community.
