The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1970s.

The congregation began services and formally organized in 1974. The first building was occupied in 1976. Melvin Roes is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through division from the Mornington Amish Mennonites over acceptance of revivalism and personality conflicts.
