International Positional Statements and IMASIC
The International Moral and Social Issues Council (IMASIC) advises the General on contemporary moral and social issues, and recommends statements of official position on such issues.
Please visit International Social Justice Commission (ISJC) for current international positional statements.
Salvation Army positional statements express the scriptural basis for the statement and the principles underlying it. They are intended to provide information to the public and guidance to Salvationists, and must be approved by the General before publication. While it is understood that individual Salvationists may hold different views on some subjects, official statements made on behalf of The Salvation Army by its officers and those who speak for the Movement must be consistent with the stated position.
Although much careful and prayerful thought is given to each positional statement before publication, they are all subject to periodic review. They may therefore be said only to represent the considered view of The Salvation Army on a given subject at a certain point in time.
