The establishment of a new congregation in North Langley was set in motion when, in November 1986, the Board of Church Extension of the British Columbia (BC) Conference of the Mennonite Brethren Churches asked Paul Fast, pastor of South Langley Mennonite Brethren Church, to lead a new church plant in Walnut Grove, BC.  The Fasts were accompanied by other families from South Langley MB Church as well as from Northview, Cornerstone, and Willingdon Mennonite Brethren Churches.  The congregation began services and was formally organized in 1987, when it joined the BC Conference of MB Churches. Until 1997 the congregation met at James Kennedy Elementary School. At that time they moved into their new sanctuary on 96th Avenue.

In 2010 the congregation had a membership of 439 with an average weekly attendance of approximately 1,000.

Jericho Ridge Community Church is a daughter congregation of North Langley.
