In response to the direction of the Holy Spirit, Victory Baptist Church of Sherwood Park ordained Charles Hollingsworth as a preacher of the Gospel, and appointed him as the pastor of a church plant in Cold Lake.  The first meetings were held in October 2006. With the support of many churches from Western Canada, and with the special assistance of Baptist Church Planting Ministries (BCPM), Lakeside Baptist Church was founded.  Since that time the congregation has grown.

The building that it currently meets in was aquired in 2009.  Through the generous gifts and vigorous efforts of the assembly, it was improved to its current condition.
