Gladeview Baptist Church was founded in April 1965 as a mission of Central Baptist Church when they rented the Village Green Community House. Subsequently the church built the existing school and chapel on 122th ave. and Coral Way. The following month, May 2, 1965, the first service was held directed by Rev. Truett Smith.
During the spring of 1968, the first preschool Christian program was organized, named Gladeview Baptist Kindergarten, which later became what is today known as Gladeview Christian School. In 1987, Pastor Michael Rodriguez founded Templo Biblico de Miami with a small group of Christians.
After consistent growth and perseverance, the Lord permitted Templo Biblico de Miami and Gladeview Baptist Church to merge in August of 2002. They were now one congregation under the leadership of Pastor Michael Rodríguez . Immediately the church initiated a process of reorganization, transformation and growth in all areas of the ministry, also building a new wing of classrooms for the school in 2007. Today Gladeview Baptist Church is growing exponentially, and to the glory of God we inaugurated our new sanctuary on September 12, 2014.
