In 1980, Meadowridge Baptist Church started a church planting work in the Lakeside area. The Fellowship was constituted later the same year and in 1983 was constituted as Lakeside Baptist Church. In 1988, as part of their 25th Anniversary celebrations, Meadowridge Baptist Church started a work in the Kirstenhof / Tokai area. The Fellowship was constituted in November 1989 and in April 1991 was constituted as Mountain View Baptist Church. The two churches amalgamated on 28 April 1993 and agreed to be known as Mountain View Baptist Church. Worship services were held in a variety of venues until April 1999. It was then that both morning and evening services were moved to the Lakeside Chapel, which was purchased in 1998 and extensively renovated and redecorated. We are a member church of the Baptist Union of Southern Africa and our current membership stands at 100 members.
