Guinea will be the 133rd country in which The Salvation Army is officially at work. The country will be part of the Liberia and Sierra Leone Command, who indicated its willingness to explore opening the doors of ministry in 2018, and by January 2019, Captains Benarde and Thomas Mbouabani were appointed to initiate the new ministry. Their work led to the official registration of the Army on 15 November 2021.

Guinea achieved independence from France in 1958 and has retained French as its national language. It has a population of more than 13 million people with a Christian population of less than 10 per cent. Today, one corps and five outposts are established preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
