The Salvation Army is an international Christian movement that is currently at work in 127 countries. Our ministry is two-fold: corps (churches) and social service work. The two go hand-in-hand because Jesus commands us to care for the whole person – body, mind and spirit.
In Romania the Army currently has four corps (Bucharest, Craiova, Iasi and Ploiesti), each with a range of social service programs. As well as offering Sunday worship services and activities for men, women, youth and children, we operate feeding programs, after-school classes, laundry projects and computer classes.
Soup Soap Salvation
Our motto is Soup Soap Salvation because we care for the whole person – body, mind and spirit. Our aim is to help those most in need: the poor, the disadvantaged, the marginalised.
Soup – We want people to be physical healthy. Our work includes providing food, clothing and medical care, and we also run sports programs.
Soap – We want people to have healthy minds. We believe everyone is entitled to an education and meaningful work to do, so we provide after-school programs, language classes and training in work skills.
Salvation – We want people to know that God loves them and that they can be spiritually healthy when they commit their lives to him. We offer worship services, Bible studies and activities for all age groups.
