The Bay Tree Mennonite congregation began services in 1972 and formally organized in 1973. The first building was occupied in 1980. Willard L. Stutzman is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through division from McBride Mennonite Church over a personality conflict.

Bishop William D. Byler served in 2007 as a non-salaried congregational leader. In 1975 there were 8 members; in 1985, 42; in 1995, 26; in 1999, 23; in 2007, 18. The congregation was affiliated with the Western Conservative Mennonite Fellowship. By 2007 the congregation was unaffiliated with a conference. The language of worship is English.
