The Philippine Chinese Baptist Convention was formally established on January 21, 1957, though they were technically in existence since 1950. It began in November 30, 1948 when Southern Baptist missionaries in Shanghai, China were forced to relocate to the Philippines due to the civil unrest caused by the Chinese Revolution (1946−1952). The missionaries settled in Baguio City where they started their work in converting the local Chinese there before eventually establishing churches in Dagupan City, Manila and Davao City in 1952. The PCBC also established the Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary in Baguio City on July 15, 1952.

As of April 2013, the Philippine Chinese Baptist Convention has the following member Churches:
