The City View Baptist Church sprung out of a church-planting endeavor by a Pastor from a prominent bible college in South Carolina. The first service was held in 1983 at a rented facility in Flatbush. After the departure of the Pastor, the church purchased the building to meet for fellowship.

The church went through a period of challenges and decided to extend a call to one of its own who had served in the deaconate. Having accepted this call, Pastor Bryan Taitt began to implement a Reformed distinctive in preaching the doctrines of grace, the Regulative Principles of Worship, and biblical evangelism.

The church continues to promote these biblical values and has experienced a measure of growth, having ministries in the community and in Southern Africa.
