THE SALVATION ARMY is an international Christian movement currently active in more than 132 countries. Our work has two components: the corps (churches) and social services. Both go hand in hand because Jesus asked us to take care of the person as a whole-body, mind, and spirit.
In Romania, The Salvation Army currently has five corps (Bucharest, Craiova, Iasi, Ploiesti and Bacau), with each offering social services and church services, organising activities for men, women and youth. A few examples of some activities are music education, after-school classes, computer courses, laundry services and community gatherings.
We aspire to be the feet of Jesus by helping our neighbours.
SOUP, SOAP & SALVATION
Our motto is Soup, Soap and Salvation because we take care of each other in wholeness of their body, mind and spirit. Our goal is to help those who are most in need: the poor, the disadvantaged, the marginalised.
Soup – We want people to be physically healthy. Our work includes providing food, clothing and medical care and sports activities.
Soap – We want people to have healthy minds. We believe that every person has the right to education and work to make it worthwhile, so we offer after-school programs, language courses and prepare people for the workforce.
Salvation – We want people to know that God loves them and that they can be spiritually healthy when they dedicate their lives to Him. We hold church services, organise Bible studies and family-friendly activities for all ages.
