The Salvation Army opened fire in Liberia in May 1988 as part of the Ghana and Liberia Territory, with Majors Leonard and Dorothy Millar as pioneer officers. This happened after more than 10 years of letters being written to International Headquarters by church pastors asking that they become part of the movement.

Liberia was given separate command status on 1 January 1997.

Neighbouring country, Sierra Leone became part of the command on 1 January 2010, with Captains John and Rosaline Bundu as pioneer officers.

Guinea became the 133rd country in which The Salvation Army is officially at work in August 2022, joining the Liberia and Sierra Leone Command.
