Welcome To The Salvation Army - Guam
To most, The Salvation Army conjures images of smiling
soldiers managing thrift store and ringing bells near red
kettles at Christmas time. While these are worthwhile
endeavors that help support important parts of our ministry,
there is so much more to The Salvation Army. Every
day, The Salvation Army on Guam helps bind the wounds of
modern day life, offering food to the hungry, shelter to the
homeless, and companionship to the forlorn. In every
community, Salvation Army officers, staff members,
Salvationists, and volunteers touch lives through selfless
acts of service.
Founded more than 140 years ago by William Booth, The
Salvation Army is a religious and social service
organization, a branch of the Christian Church dedicated to
the battle against sin and despair.
The Salvation Army seeks not only to improve the physical
environment and provide for material needs, but also reveal
the power of Christ's love. Our social services
programs assist children, the elderly, families, and those
battling addiction. The Salvation Army operates in
more than 117 countries, offering disaster relief, day care,
summer camps, hospitals, shelters, counseling centers,
vocational training, and substance abuse treatment programs.
The Salvation Army - Guam began it's first work on Guam
following Typhoon Omar in the fall of 1992. Shortly
thereafter, The Salvation Army Corps and Community Center
was opened. Corps and Community Centers are the
heartbeat of all Salvation Army units. Using a
military metaphor, each "corps" is a place of worship that
conducts church services for any that choose to attend.
it seeks to meet the spiritual needs of a regular community
of worshippers as well.
The Salvation Army - Guam, has a great legacy of service
on Guam since planting the flag in 1992.

Our Message to the community...
As long as people are discouraged or lonely or
needing a helping hand, our “Army of Compassion” will still
have a mission.
We serve not as a beacon to
ourselves, but as a reflection of God’s brighter light that
has always driven our movement.
