William Booth began the Salvation Army in 1865 as a way to help the suffering souls throughout London who were unwilling or felt unwelcomed to a traditional church. Many of the first converts were thieves, prostitutes, gamblers, and drunkards, and the gospel of Jesus Christ spread far and wide to those in need.
The Salvation Army came over to the United States in 1880 in New York. The Salvation Army - Fox Cities was established in April 1917 on College Ave., and have been in the Fox Valley ever since.
