Salvation Army work in Germany began in Stuttgart on 14 November 1886 through the persistent sale of the Swiss Kriegsruf (War Cry) by Staff-Captain Fritz Schaaf who, after being converted in New York, was stationed in Switzerland and could not resist the call to bring the message over the border into his fatherland.

The Salvation Army was first registered as a limited company in Berlin in 1897 and was recognised throughout Germany as a church and public corporation on 10 October 1967 by law in Nordrhein-Westfalen. It is recognised as a religious association with public rights in the states of Berlin, Hessen, Schleswig-Holstein and Baden-Wrttemberg.

Salvation Army work in Lithuania having begun in 1998, the Germany Territory was redesignated the Germany and Lithuania Territory in September 2005.

That same month, 'Project Warsaw' was launched to begin the Army's work in Poland (under IHQ) and on 1 July 2008 the Germany and Lithuania Territory took responsibility for this work when a regional office for Poland was established in Dresden.
