The theology of William Booth, The Salvation Army's Founder and first General, was vital in its spirit and practical in focus. Booth was a product of nineteenth-century urban England. His theology took shape as he attempted to understand how he could reach the urban masses in Nottingham and London with the Gospel. Through this theology, Booth and his organizations became so inextricably united that it is impossible to write about one without writing about the other.
To comprehend his theology is to understand the development of The Salvation Army from its Christian Mission days in 1865 to its organizational structure in 1912. Likewise, to know the theology of The Salvation Army is to know something of the theology of William Booth, for, greatly influenced by several key people, increasingly provided the theological foundation, the theological legitimacy, and the theological vision for the movement. William Booth committed himself fully to the work of the Christian Mission and The Salvation Army until his death, or 'promotion to Glory,' on August 20, 1912.
