The Kingston corps shares the global mission statement of The Salvation Army:

“The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.”

The ministry of the Kingston corps is a practical concern for the needs of humanity. This is expressed by preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, disseminating Christian truths, and undertaking the spiritual and moral regeneration of all persons who come within its sphere of influence, regardless of race, creed, color, sex, or age.
