The Casey Amish Mennonite Church in Liberty, Kentucky, USA was established in 1974.

The Casey Amish congregation has been one of the most conservative Beachy Amish churches in practice. A small faction at Harmony Christian Fellowship in Millington, Maryland, was not satisfied with the direction the church was going. This faction withdrew and eventually made its way to Kentucky. The church retained the German language in 2005.

In 2018 the church was a member of the Midwest Beachy Amish Mennonite Church and had a membership of 79. The bishop was Lester S. Beachy, and the ministers were Melvin S. Beachy, Titus Beachy, Joe W. Borntrager and Joseph J. Borntrager.
