The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Salvation Army Centers for Worship and Service are sometimes called "citadels," Corps, or "temples", but, whatever their name, they are Christian churches that are open to the community they serve and offer a warm welcome to all.
Most Salvation Army centers hold weekly worship services, usually on a Sunday. These meetings have a relaxed atmosphere, and can include hymn singing, Bible readings, members of the congregation talking about their Christian experiences, and presentations by worship or drama groups. As well as services on a Sunday, there are often weekday and evening activities, such as prayer groups, family events, lunch groups, youth clubs and meetings for seniors.
Faithful Christians and all wishing to pursue a closer relationship with God are welcomed to attend our regular weekly services and special events. The heart of The Salvation Army lies in the Centers for Worship & Service.
We have three worship centers in Rochester that are the spiritual foundation of what we do. Worship services, Sunday school and Bible study groups are part of each center, but each also fulfills a unique role in its neighborhood:
Liberty Pole Way Center for Worship and Service located at 60 Liberty Pole Way
Northwest Center for Worship and Service located at 100 West Avenue
Temple Center for Worship and Service located at 915 N. Clinton Avenue
