Hello!  Welcome to The Salvation Army in Asbury Park serving the communities of Allenhurst, Asbury Park, Avon by the Sea, Deal, Interlaken, Loch Arbor, Neptune, Oakhurst, Ocean, Ocean Grove, Wanamassa and Wayside.  We trust the few minutes you spend visiting us on-line will lead you to visit us in person at our Corps building.

You'll see from our weekly activity schedule that The Salvation Army has a variety of programs for you to attend.  Together, these activities and services help the Army fulfill its mission in our communities.  For over 125 years in Asbury Park, The Salvation Army has marched with brass bands to trumpet the good news of God's love.  To continue this legacy of witness, we remain on our knees in prayer seeking His will and His mercy on behalf of all we serve.

Come and join us - there's a warm welcome waiting you at The Salvation Army.


Majors Norma and Stanley Newton, Corps Commanding Officers
