The Salvation Army began in 1865 when

William Booth,a London minister, gave up

the comfort of his pulpit and decided to

take his message into the streets where

it wouldreach the poor, the homeless,

the hungry and the destitute.


By 1880, The Salvation Army had

spread to 36 countries around

the globe,including the United States.


Just 6 short years later,

The Salvation Army made it

to the midwest and by 1889,The Salvation Army

arrived in Macomb.


Now, some 125 years later,

The Salvation Army is determined

to continue the work of its founder- William Booth.

That work is found in our mission statement.
