But what is the Salvation Army? What does it stand for and what has been its goals over the years? Essentially, the Salvation Army is a charity organization designed to help spread supplies and gifts to those in need. Apart from many other charities, though, The Salvation Army is a Christianity-based organization, which means it has always had a very Christian basis for everything it does. It's designed to spread the good news of the gospel to people in need by serving them. The purpose of the Salvation Army is self-stated as advancing Christianity throughout the world, through helping serve in education, providing relief to those who find themselves in poverty, and by being charitable to anyone who needs help.
The Salvation Army wants to help serve mankind as a whole and wants to try and make the word a more giving place. The Salvation Army has very distinct Christian beliefs and it tries to remain as a Christian organization dedicated to serving anyone it can. Started in 1865, The Salvation Army is still strongly in effect and well supported, even 150 years later. Boundless Salvation William Booth and the Salvation Army serves mostly to focus on the man who created the Salvation Army. And that honor would belong to William Booth, a man committed to his faith and to helping bring Christianity and charity to a world that desperately needs it.

Boundless Salvation William Booth and the Salvation Army shows that William Booth was born in Nottingham in the year 1829. While his family began in a relatively high status and was well known throughout the community as a well-off and wealthy family, they began to slowly descend into a serious time of poverty as time went on. By the time Booth was entering his teenage years, his father could no longer afford schooling for him. William Booth was sent to work as an apprentice for a pawnbroker and his father died that next year sadly. Booth continued his apprenticeship and was eventually able to convert to Christianity. It was in this time that Booth would learn what it meant to be a Christian and this would become the foundation for everything else in his life. This would be where he would learn the foundations of Christianity, something that would profoundly impact The Salvation Army and distinguish it from many other charities as a specifically Christ-centered organization.
Booth continued trying to do some preaching and open air street evangelizing, but found himself often getting discouraged with lack of results and the reluctance of people to listen to what Booth had to say. He spent years preaching, working as a pawnbroker, and many other things and eventually he began to preach about the need for Christians to help others and serve those who were in poverty in the community. This continued to be an incredible point for him and eventually he became convicted that he needed to practice what he preached. So he, along with a number of his brothers in Christ began to serve in the community, opening soup kitchens and helping people who were poor or homeless. Boundless Salvation William Booth and the Salvation Army tells the story, showing how Booth increasingly became involved in all of this. He began to see the need for a charity to rise up and help the needs of people in poverty, but also give them ways to find out more about Christianity.
