Description


Welcome to The Salvation Army USA Eastern Territory site. The Salvation Army USA Eastern Territory includes the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and certain counties in Kentucky. Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are also included within this territory. Three other Salvation Army USA Territories serve the Western, Central, and Southern regions of the country. All territories are supervised by The Salvation Army National Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. Our Eastern Territorial Headquarters is located in West Nyack, NY, and operates under the leadership of Commissioner Lawrence R. Moretz. This administrative headquarters oversees all operations and programs for service-providing units of The Salvation Army within the Eastern Territory. To effectively minister and serve within such a vast area, the Eastern Territory is divided into 11 Divisions, each headed by a divisional commander. Divisions are comprised of corps community centers (Salvation Army churches) and other specialized service centers. Corps community centers are the most basic service units of The Salvation Army, providing religious and social services adapted to the needs of their communities. There are over 400 corps community centers within the Eastern Territory. Areas that are without an official corps community center may be served through The Salvation Army’s service extension units. There are presently 1,454 service extension units providing assistance to more remote regions of the Eastern Territory. In addition to corps community centers and service extension units, there are also approximately 300 Salvation Army Thrift (or Family) Stores. The proceeds from all of our thrift stores support more than 40 adult rehabilitation centers within the Eastern Territory.

Organizational Statement of Faith


The Salvation Army's eleven articles of faith reflect our determination to remain faithful to our standards and principles. All members of The Salvation Army are encouraged to review these principles from time to time and to reaffirm before God their dedication to Him and to His good works. 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 innocence, 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.
