Share to care
As the two administrative territories of The Salvation Army in Australia continue to grow closer, merging into a new national unity by January 2019, a new set of mission values has been released.
Words have value, impact and power. By taking on these words, the Salvos signal their intent to continue to be others-focused.
These national Salvos’ values are: Caring for people; creating faith pathways; building healthy communities; and working for justice. Being there, when people need us most. It seems obvious, but it’s the Salvos publicly making a commitment to offer care and compassion.
That care goes beyond the physical to include the societal and the spiritual; The Salvation Army, as part of the Christian church, works holistically to share the good news as preached and lived by Jesus Christ – graciously, invitationally, ‘hopefully’.
No-one gets to where they want to be on their own. The Salvos believe in building a sense of community through long-term partnerships and relationships. That makes sense when you consider the additional desire to tackle ‘the social systems that harm creation and strip away human dignity… building a fairer world where all can thrive'.
