Waterloo Mennonite Brethren Sunday School, a mission endeavor of Kitchener Mennonite Brethren Church and spearheaded by Vic Hiebert, began 13 November 1960 with five students. Enrollment had increased to 12 students by March 1961 and then climbed to 19 that fall. A monthly family worship service also began that year. By the next fall, enrollment in the mission Sunday school had increased to 25 students. In 1966, Kitchener MB Church arranged for the Waterloo congregation to be independent. Waterloo MB Church officially began 1 January 1967 with 43 charter members. Frank C. Peters conducted the organizational meeting on 8 January, assisted by Henry H. Dueck. The motto chosen by the Waterloo congregation was John 10:10.
The first building was occupied in 1973, with a subsequent building program in 1989.
