The Salvation Army believes that all people are made in the image of God and are thus of equal intrinsic value. We seek to treat all people with dignity and respect in response to Jesus’ call to love our neighbours as ourselves. We oppose oppression or unjust discrimination based on such differences as race, gender, age, belief, lifestyle, economic status, or physical or mental ability.
We believe that diversity strengthens and shapes community and ministry. Therefore, in our community services, employment practices and church life, we seek to actively promote sensitivity, understanding and communication in both intent and practice.
Below you will find a a series of essays and posts written by CFOT staff and cadets reflecting on what it means to live up to the beliefs previously stated.
