First Time Visitor?


We have ministries for children of all ages on Sunday.  We also have a nursery and cry room.  We invite our children (ages 6-12) to join with us during the worship time and then they will be dismissed to junior church before teaching time.  An usher can help you find your child's room. A nursery is also provided for infants and children up to 5 years of age

Special Needs

There is wheel chair accessibility throughout our building in order to accommodate those who might find it more difficult to get around.

Getting Connected

We want to connect with you! Please fill out a contact card, located on the front table, and place it in with the offering, or hand it to one of our greeters. We would love to get to know you and know how we can make you feel at home.

How Should I Dress For Church?

You will find some people dressed in Salvation Army uniform, you will find some in their "Sunday best", with suits and ties, and others in jeans and tees. We care about the heart, not what you wear!

What We Believe

Many people see The Salvation Army only as red kettles at Christmas time or a place to drop off used clothing, but at its very heart, The Salvation Army is a Christian church with a mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.   We believe our faith calls us to roll up our sleeves and get to work: to meet the material and emotional needs of a person while we minister to them spiritually through acts of love and service. 

That's why our Worship and Service Centers are not only places of Sunday worship for a regular community of believers, but also places that offer programs to meet the human needs of our community.  Our ministry is bound by our hearts that are in love with Jesus and our actions to share Christ's Love through service to others.   

The Salvation Army's eleven articles of faith reflect our determination to remain faithful to our standards and principles.

  1. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, and that they only constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice.
  2. We believe that there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship.
  3. We believe that there are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory.
  4. We believe that in the person of Jesus Christ the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man.
  5. We believe that our first parents were created in a state of innocency, but by their disobedience, they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall, all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God.
  6. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has by His suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.
  7. We believe that repentance toward God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary to salvation.
  8. We believe that we are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself.
  9. We believe that continuance in a state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ.
  10. We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  11. We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the body, in the general judgment at the end of the world, in the eternal happiness of the righteous, and in the endless punishment of the wicked.
