The Nickel Mines Mennonite Church (Biblical Mennonite Alliance) is located in a former mining community at 1981 Mine Road, Paradise, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The ministers of the Paradise District of the Lancaster Mennonite Conference bought and repaired an abandoned Episcopal meetinghouse, and services were started on 29 September 1935. In 1952 Paul C. Mast  was ordained as local pastor. The missionaries Edgar Denlinger and Irene Stauffer were from this congregation. The membership in 1956 was 40, with C. Marvin Eshleman as pastor.

In 2002 the Nickel Mines congregation left the Lancaster Conference to join the Biblical Mennonite Alliance.

In 2015 the leading minister was Leon K. Martin and the associate pastor was Ernest E. Mummau. The congregational membership was 67 and the average weekly attendance was 80.
