COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHERE DID THE NAME OF THE SALVATION ARMY COME FROM?
In 1865 The Salvation Army started out as the Christian Revival Society, and was soon after called the East London Christian Mission. The organization grew rapidly and in 1867 became known simply as the Christian Mission. In 1878 William Booth, the founder, was proof reading a pamphlet, which referred to the Christian Mission as a "volunteer army." Booth changed the word "volunteer" to read "Salvation Army" and the name was adopted.
The Salvation Army's work in 128 countries is co-ordinated by our International Headquarters in London, UK. At present, there are five Zones. Within these Zones are territories and within the territories are divisions. The Salvation Army serving Carson City and Douglas County is part of the Del Oro Division and the Western Territory.
WHY THE UNIFORMS?
It is a witness of our faith in God. No one wears the uniform unless they are a soldier (member) of The Salvation Army. By putting on the uniform, we are publicly sharing our love for God, our relationship with Him, and our desire to serve Him by serving others.
