In 1958 a small group of faithful people formed a church in a basement of a home in Lincoln Park, MI. The church was known as the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Park. In the Early 1960’s the church moved to it’s current location in Allen Park and changed the name to Southfield Road Baptist Church. Many church plants came from Southfield Road over the years and we continue to reach out today, seeking to help existing churches. From the early days until now we have been a mission minded church. In 2017 the Southfield Road Baptist Church has changed its unofficial name to the Road Church.
Gilberto Regalado became senior pastor at The Road church on June 1st, 2020. Throughout the years he has served in many positions where God has used his obedience to teach and influence men and women of all ages. He first began as a youth leader, young men’s group bible leader, and then took a position as associate pastor beginning in 2016 at The Road Church. Gilberto Regalado has made a personal mission to reach as many people with Gods guidance and instruction, as he allows the spirit to lead and direct him in what he feels God has called him to do.
We support the greater mission in our region and throughout the world by supporting the larger-scale work of our affiliates. We have a monthly missions offering to support the Greater Detroit Baptist Association as they reach out to other churches in our area.  Our Sunday morning study groups each sponsor a mission. We also continue to give to the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention which serves a variety of ministries including international missions.
