The Christian Fellowship Chapel began services in 1943, informally organized on 1 September 1944 and formally organized in December 1948. Prior to 1943 H. P. Fast of Steinbach, Manitoba, met with several families who had moved from rural Manitoba in private homes in Winnipeg. Later, under the leadership of A. P. Toews, the group met at the Bethel Mission Church, and at the I.O.D.E. Hall on Sargent Avenue. In 1944 the group purchased a property at 232 Nassau Street; the existing building was renovated in 1953/54. In the spring of 1957 work began on the building at the present site, and the congregation officially moved on 8 December 1957. The first building was occupied in 1946, with a subsequent building program in 1957. H. P. Fast and A. P. Toews are considered the founding leaders of the group. The congregation originated through urbanization from rural Manitoba.
The congregation has been affiliated with the Evangelical Mennonite Brethren (1950-1987) / Fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches (1987-).
