The Valley View Amish Mennonite Church in Belleville, Pennsylvania, USA was established in 1954. The congregation started when the Bishop John P. Zook district of Old Order Amish in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania gave support to the new Weavertown congregation in Lancaster County. The district became known as the Peachey Amish Mennonites, and itself divided into districts. It permitted the use of automobiles in 1954, and then affiliated with the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship.

A meetinghouse was constructed in 1962, bringing the two districts together in the Valley View Amish Mennonite Church.

In 2017 the church was a member of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship and had a membership of 110. The bishop was Eli B. King, Jr., and the ministers were David S. King, Jesse M. Peachey and Loren K. Yoder.
