What is church?

The Church is the family of God.

It’s made up of Christian denominations and local churches, like The Salvation Army and local Salvation Army corps.

There are many reasons to connect with a local church.

Doing life together

We walk our spiritual journey as part of a God-given family. Christianity does not work on its own – it’s doing faith and life together in community. We were made to be with others.

Learning together

The Holy Spirit enables us to learn together – through the Bible and each other – about who God is, and what our purpose is on earth.

Growing together

The Holy Spirit enables us to build each other up in Christian faith, to bear each other’s burdens and to encourage, celebrate, share, comfort and challenge one another.

Serving together

Each person receives gifts and is called by God to develop these gifts for the benefit of all. Together, we can achieve more.
