Here’s the sign on our new building at Bellshill Salvation Army

Did you manage to make out what it says? It says “Church and Community Centre”.

I’ve heard it said a number of times, “I didn’t realise the Salvation Army is a church as well as a charity”. Hopefully our new sign will help remind everyone that yes, the Salvation Army is  a registered charity working in the community to help other, but that we are also a church.

So in answer to the question in the title of this blog post, the answer is both – The Salvation Army is a charity and a church.

Following God’s plan for your life does not mean life will be easy, it simply means you’re following God’s path and He will be there with you, through everything.

So how do we go about following God’s path? We pray, we listen to God and follow the directions He gives us…we follow God’s signs.

Signs by Michael W Smith

You’re weighed down with regret
You can’t see the road ahead
Or the burden on your back
It seems the trek will never end
The winding paths that still descend
And up above a sky washed black
You just can’t bear to look at that

Chorus:
Follow the signs
Open your eyes
Read between the lines of what you see
Look into the soul of reality
Open your mind
Look at the signs
Never look back at yesterday
Keep your gaze steady on the narrow way

Now you’ve found the sacred tree
You kneel upon the broken wheat
You watch your burden fall away
And all the things that you once sought
Now are counted less than lost
For now you see the light of day
The signs were pointing all the way

Repeat chorus

Follow the signs
Follow the signs
Open your eyes
Look at the signs
Open your mind
Follow the signs

Repeat chorus

Mark 16:20 (NIV)

Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
