Old Colony Mennonites first arrived in Belize in 1958 and still continue to live there today. They were followed by service workers in 1966, who began medical and agricultural work in the Orange Walk District. The Belize Evangelical Mennonite Church was established in 1973, led by pastors and deacons from the various churches in the area. Today most of the church's congregations have Belizean pastors and place a strong emphasis on evangelism and church growth. The church is a member of MWC.[2]

The Belize Evangelical Mennonite Church began in 1973 as a result of service and mission activities of Mennonite Central Committee and Eastern Mennonite Missions. These agencies worked with the Low German–speaking Mennonite colonists in the early 1960s.
