Mount Carmel Bible Fellowship (Wallingford, Kentucky, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Mount Carmel Bible Fellowship is located in Wallingford, Kentucky, USA. The church originated as a result of controversy within the local New Order Amish in 1983. Several members were re-baptized after they confessed they had not been saved prior to their first baptism. This created controversy and isolated the congregation from the New Order Amish.

An investigation committee composed both of New Order Amish and Mennonite Christian Fellowship ministers resulted in the transformation to the Mount Carmel Bible Fellowship in 1984.

In 2018 the church had 48 members and was a member of the Mennonite Christian Fellowship. The ministerial team included Bishop Ben Peachey, Ministers Daniel Esh, Ernest E. Helmuth, and Joe Sommers.
