The Vietnamese Christian Church began in 2008 as an outreach ministry of the Vancouver Vietnamese Mennonite Church. Nhien Pham, pastor of the Vancouver congregation, led the Abbotsford congregation for five years until 2013 when Ken Ha took over the leadership. In 2014 the Abbotsford congregation met weekly at Emmanuel Mennonite Church and functioned as part of Emmanuel's ministry, including financial support. The congregation met for worship on Sunday evenings and for prayer on Thursday evenings. At that time the congregation was the only Vietnamese congregation in the Fraser Valley, which had an estimated 200 Vietnamese families in the area.

In 2015 the congregation had a membership of 32.
