Launched 7 September 1997 in the west end of Vancouver (near the University of British Columbia), the Vancouver Christian Logos Church chartered in January 1998, and at the time had an attendance of 100. A Caucasian Christian in the area told the pastor he had been praying for a Chinese church in the area for 10 years. The church began by renting a community centre as its meeting place. Four months later, a local Baptist church offered to rent space to the new church, and the two churches agreed to work together to evangelize the community.
The congregation joined the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches in 1998. The pastor of the congregation since its inception is John Kwok. In 2010 the congregation had an average weekly attendance of 160.
