Commissioner Howell’s Spring 2018 Message

Commissioners Willis and Barbara Howell are joined by Territorial Sergeant Major John Reeves to illustrate more about WHY we do what we do.

THE SALVATION ARMY CORE VALUES

PASSIONATE
The Salvation Army’s mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in his name without discrimination. We believe Christ changes lives. This faith gives us a motivation that goes beyond simply doing good. We have a passion for doing the most good for body, soul and spirit.

COMPASSIONATE
Caring for the poor. Feeding the hungry. Sheltering the homeless. Clothing the naked. Loving the unlovable. Befriending the friendless

UPLIFTING
William Booth once said, “The Salvation Army is a place of hope. When every other light is extinguished, and every other star has gone down, this one gleam shines steadily and clearly out in the darkened sky: ‘If I could only get to The Salvation Army, they will do something for me.’ ”

BRAVE
People who serve in The Salvation Army routinely go into places others prefer to avoid: Impoverished neighborhoods, jails and prisons, hospital rooms and nursing homes, gatherings of alcoholics and drug addicts, and the immediate scene of natural disasters.

TRUSTWORTHY
To those who want to positively affect their world, The Salvation Army is the charity that maximizes their contributions by using 83 cents of every dollar donated to provide direct services to the less.
