In the New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa Territory

The mission of The Salvation Army in New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa is:

  • Caring for people: Salvationists follow the example of Jesus by identifying with the needy, standing alongside them and caring for people in all situations.

  • Transforming lives: Salvationists believe that God can transform people and that the resulting wholeness is experienced through belief in Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. This transformation is evidenced in discipleship and commitment.

  • Reforming society: Salvationists seek to express the love and power of God in the community. This calls for the challenging of injustice and oppression, and for steps aimed at their elimination.

 

In Brief: Caring for people, transforming lives and reforming society - through God, in Christ, by the Holy Spirit's power.
