In 1987 Sally Schroeder Isaak, a retired missionary who had served in Ecuador, started a Spanish Sunday school class at Bakerview Mennonite Brethren Church in Abbotsford, British Columbia. In May 1989 Isaac Hernandez began working with the Spanish language ministry at Bakerview. In 1996 the congregation became independent and was accepted as a member of the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches and Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches.

In 2007 the congregation had 39 members and an average attendance of 60, meeting at Bakerview Church, and Rubén Zuñiga was the pastor. Attendance rises to 80-100 in the summer due to an influx of migrant workers from Mexico and Guatemala that attend the church.

The congregation is also known as the Iglesia Hispana Bakerview.
