We love because God loved us first

The Salvation Army provides spiritual services to anyone God brings across our path.

Our Motivation

At its heart, The Salvation Army is a church. This foundation is what motivates us to do the work that we do. We love God and serve others because of His love for all. That’s where our mission comes from – to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet needs in His name without discrimination. Because, we want others to come to know God’s love too. These are our marching orders.

The Salvation Army in Plainfield

We are a Church based partnership influenced organization offering social services, food services, family services, and children’s programs. Our goal is to serve and meet emotional, physical, and spiritual needs through the love of God.

A Biblical Foundation

Everything we teach is rooted in God's Word, the Bible. Our organization started as an outreach of the church in Victorian England. When the East End of London was a place most people were afraid to go, William and Catherine Booth felt that God wanted them to go into this darkness and share His love. Booth was smart enough to realize that no one, "could hear a preacher if his stomach was growling more loudly from hunger than the preacher could speak!" Together, they set about meeting simple needs as living examples of God's love, with the hope that their action would be more effective than merely words. More than 150 years later, The Salvation Army has churches in 129 countries around the world and has faithfully obeyed the words of Jesus in Matthew 28:19 to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
