The Niverville Chortitzer Mennonite Church began services in 1926, and formally organized as a separate congregation in 1975. Gerhard Wiebe is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through division from the Bergthaler Mennonite Church.

In 1963 the congregation experienced a split which brought into being the Word of Life Mission Church of Niverville.

In 1975 there were 170 members; in 1985, 235. The congregation has been affiliated with the Chortitzer Mennonite Church. The language of worship is German and English; the transition from German occurred in the 1970s.

Minister Bernhard W. Hiebert served in the 1980s as a non-salaried congregational leader. In 2001 Jake Doerksen served as the pastoral leader.
