|No, we are a group of committed Christians who are concerned to see that the gospel - the good news of Jesus Christ - reaches the need of the whole person. The Army’s social work sprang out of such concern. All we do is motivated by Christian love. If we, for want of a better way of speaking, refer to our church work and also to our social work, it is not that these are two distinct entities which could operate one without the other. They are but two activities of the one and the same salvation which is concerned with the total redemption of the whole person. We are not a social services agency which happens to be run by religious people, but a Christian church which, under God’s guidance does social work.|
