The International Worship Church started in 1997 as a small home prayer meeting of 13 people. Harjono Margono, Samuel Murti, and Buddy Hannanto started the church in Santa Monica, California, USA. In December 1999, Buddy Hannanto was licensed by Jeff Wright as Director of the Pacific Southwest Mennonite Conference.

In 2000 the congregation moved to a new location in Alhambra City. and in 2017 to a larger church building in San Gabriel.

Initially, the International Worship Church became part of the Pacific Southwest Mennonite Conference. When that conference was reorganized, the congregation joined the Franconia Mennonite Conference in fall 2017. It had strong ties to the Franconia Conference's Indonesian-speaking congregations in Philadelphia.

In 2021 the congregation was part of the Mosaic Mennonite Conference. The minister was Buddy Hannanto. The church held both Indonesian and English-language services.
