Religious organization which originated in England under William Booth, minister of the "New Connexion Methodists," and was introduced into the United States in 1881. Members are Arminian rather than Calvinistic in doctrine, and in order to be admitted to membership one must sign a pledge of total abstinence from intoxicating liquors and all harmful drugs. They are military in government, and persons of every social grade are found in their ranks. They do earnest work among the submerged, as they style them. They publish four periodicals. Missionary work is carried on in South Africa, India, Japan, Korea, Java, and China.
