Work in Angola was officially established in 1985. Having been part of the Congo (Kinshasa) and Angola Territory, it became a separate command on 1 March 2008.

In 1974, two officers orginally from Angola but trained and served in Congo (Kinshasa) entered Angola by Uige Province to commence Salvation Army meetings in that part of the country. In 1978, other Salvationists from Kinshasa met in Angola's capital, Luanda, and `opened fire'. The Salvation Army was officially recognised by the Anolga Government on 14 February 1992. 

Salvationists in the command continue to show desire to spread the Army's presence throughout the country. Through their discipleship and evangelism they are ministering in places where the work is already established but also in new locations. As a result, they are seeing an increase in the number of people who are being enrolled as soliders.
