The Jesus Army, also known as the Jesus Fellowship Church, aims to be a contemporary expression of the historic Christian faith. All kinds of people are involved: young and old, rich and poor.

The Jesus Army is a UK-based evangelical Christian church with a charismatic emphasis and Baptist roots. The church is orthodox in doctrine and accepts the historic Christian creeds. It developed from Bugbrooke Baptist Chapel in Northamptonshire, UK, when its pastor, Noel Stanton (1926-2009), led the church to embrace the charismatic movement.

Details of the church are listed in the UK Christian Handbook and the English Church Census. It is linked with other churches and groups in the UK and overseas through the Multiply Christian Network, and is a member of the Evangelical Alliance UK.

The Jesus Army is particularly active with many in need, including homeless people and those involved in alcohol and drug abuse. In this work it aims to show Christian compassion and love, helping people to find hope and giving them back their dignity. The help given is normally conducted alongside various caring professions, and with their input.
