“I AM FOR THE WORLD’S SALVATION, I WILL
QUARREL WITH NO MEANS THAT PROMISES HELP.”
Refusing to be limited by tradition, William and Catherine
Booth set out in 1861 to take the gospel to whomever would
listen. Using street meetings, parades, marching bands, and
posters, the Booths and their followers attracted people who
felt unwelcomed by traditional churches. Eventually called The
Salvation Army, William and Catherine’s ministry touched the
poor, the destitute, and the addicted with the love of Christ.
Fiercely dedicated to obeying God’s leading, neither William
nor Catherine was swayed by the opposition of political
or religious leaders. The determined work begun by this
innovative couple continues to change lives to this day.
