The Mission Christian Fellowship began services in 1981, meeting in various local establishments.  They occupied their first church building in 1986. Jake and Esther Balzer are considered the founding leaders of this group.  The congregation originated through division from Mountain View Gospel Chapel. Mission Christian Fellowship was one of two congregations formed after the 1981 split of Mountain View Gospel Chapel. The other was New Covenant Church at Mission which no longer relates to a Mennonite conference.

This church closed in 1999 and a new church was begun under the name Northside Community Church at the same location.
