The Roblin Church of God in Christ, Mennonite congregation in Roblin, Manitoba, Canada began when several farm families moved to the area by 1964. For several years Sunday school was held in homes. In 1967, after several more families had moved to Roblin, the group purchased a former Free Methodist church building in Bield. On 9 July 1967 it organized as a congregation; the only local ordained leader at that time was Deacon Victor Isaac.

Minister Alva Froese moved to Roblin with his family in 1968. In 1969 the congregation built a church 4.5 miles east of Roblin. When this building became inadequate, a new facility at the same location was erected in 1983. The old building was moved to the new congregation at Carrot River, Saskatchewan.

The church began the Parkland Christian School in 1977; Con Barkman served as the first teacher.

By 2000 the congregation included farmers, carpenters, and mechanics.

In 2019 the congregation was part of the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite. The ministers were Randy Bartel, Stuart Isaac, Ron Friesen, and Michael Isaac. The latter was serving in Zimbabwe in 2019.
