American Rescue Workers; Salvation Army of America

Formerly known as the American Salvation Army. A group of workers under Thomas E. Moore, who withdrew from the Salvation Army in 1882, incorporated as a separate body in 1884, and the following year adopted a charter under the name of Salvation Army of America. In 1913 the name was changed to American Rescue Workers. Similar to the Salvation Army in belief and government, their church is Christian with the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. They publish a quarterly periodical.
