All of the ministries offered to women by The Salvation Army are part of our Women's Ministries, including Home League and Women's Outreach Groups.
Purpose - Our fundamental purpose is; 1) to win women for Christ, encourage spiritual growth, and provide Christian fellowship, 2) to promote a purposeful life, 3) to work toward the betterment of the home, the community, the nation and the world, and 4) to recruit soldiers and link families to the fellowship of believers.
Aim - Women play a vital and definitive role in shaping society through their influence in the home, family and the community. The aim of any Women's Ministries program is to provide Christian fellowship and practical help that will benefit not only the individual and her family, but also the nation.
Expectation - In an effort to win women and families for Christ and to minister to their needs, Salvation Army corps (worship communities) and social service programs may need to explore and implement a variety of programs. Among these, the Home League is unique in that common requirements must be followed to ensure its international unity and maintain the worldwide fellowship.
