Northbrook Baptist Church was established as a plant of Immanuel Baptist Church in the Northbrook residential area of Cedar Rapids in 1978 to minister to the growing population of northeast Cedar Rapids, Robins, Hiawatha, Marion, and the surrounding area. In 1986 a permanent building at the present location was built. In the 1990’s the church had outgrown its sanctuary and a second Sunday morning worship service was started. In 2002 we were blessed with the addition of new multipurpose building and returned to one Sunday morning worship service. Our current Elder for Preaching and Vision is John Janke, who began his ministry at Northbrook in August of 2014.
