The Newton Bible Church had its beginning when, on 4 April 1955, the following request with 28 signatures came to the board of deacons of the First Mennonite Church of Newton: "Having felt a definite need for an interdenominational church in Newton, we the undersigned now would like to ask for our church letters so that we might unite as the Newton Bible Church." This request was granted. In 1957 the newly organized church worshiped at 900 Old Main Street and had Lawrence Friesen as pastor.
