BMGC began in 1984 when five families in Bukit Mertajam gathered at individual houses in the Bukit Mertajam area for fellowship and worship meetings. This unsteady beginning was plagued by frequent moving from place to place for worship purposes until September 1991. Support from Nibong Tebal Gospel Hall, Sungai Nibong Gospel Hall, Island Glades Gospel Centre, Burmah Road Gospel Hall and Butterworth Gospel Hall enabled the fledging BMGC to rent the first floor of a shophouses at Jalan Padang Lallang for Sunday Worship Service and Sunday School purposes.
With God's guidance and blessings, the combined congregations of Mandarin- and English- speaking assemblies grew to more than 50 and there was a strong need to move to a more suitable place to accommodate this number.
Again with the Lord's guidance, blessing and enablement, BMGC managed to purchase a shophouse for RM182,000.00 in Taman Sri Rambai, Bukit Mertajam as proper church premises. An interest-free loan of RM150,000.00 was obtained from Jalan Imbi Chapel with monthly repayment of RM1500.00. Thanks to the many assemblies and individuals who contributed generously to the building fund, the Ian was repaid about seven years later.
Thus, BMGC with a 40-plus English-speaking assembly and a 30-plus Mandarin-speaking assembly has been able to maintain a steady influence in Taman Sri Rambai, Bukit Mertajam. Both the English and Mandarin-speaking assemblies have since held regular Sunday Worship Service, Sunday School with regular Friday Night Bible Study classes and Ladies Circle meetings at the present premises.
This happy situation persisted till 2004 when the shophouse next door was suddenly available for sale at an auction price of RM150,000.00. BMGC quickly purchased the shophouse next door and with this purchase, expanded BMGC premises. Thus, BMGC is now able to hold Sunday School in Mandarin, English Hour classes, Worship Services in English and Mandarin as well as Bible Study classes without hassle.
Having received so much of the Lord's providence blessings and enablement, may we, the congregation at BMGC be led to know that we now stand at the threshold of BMGC and feel guided by The Lord to do more for Him and be the salt and the light of this neighbourhood at Taman Sri Rambai, Bukit Mertajam.
