First Mennonite Church (General Conference Mennonite), located in Lima, Allen County, Ohio, was organized 1 October 1935 as a mission. It was a member of the Middle District Conference (later Central District Conference). The meetinghouse, erected in 1936, was a brick structure with a seating capacity of 125. The membership in 1955 was 76; the pastor was Sylvan Lehman.

In 1995 First Mennonite Church merged with the Northside Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church) to form the Lima Mennonite Church. The new congregation operated at the former Northside location.

In 2017 the congregation decided to remain a member only of the Central District Conference.
