Who We Are

North Brooklyn Baptist Church is a new Independent Baptist church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Some of the first members of the Open Door Bible Baptist Church of Astoria were residents of Greenpoint. Since that time over 20 years ago, that church has been praying for an Open Door to start a new Baptist church in Greenpoint. God led the Michael Newburger family to Astoria to learn from their experiences and begin a new church in Greenpoint.

We are a church that believes that the Bible is God's Holy Word. It is the center of our ministry. We use the name Baptist because it links us to a group of people who down through the ages have held to a simple belief that what the Bible says is true. Our church offers no mystical experiences, just real Bible answers for life's greatest questions.

Being part of a church "plant" is an exciting experience. Having the opportunity to see a church grow from the ground level can do wonders for our faith. The most exhilarating part of a church's growth takes place within the lives of its people. Someone may ask, "what demographic are you trying to reach?" The answer is, "everyone!" That is the amazing thing about a church, people from all ages, nationalities and economic backgrounds can come together to serve Christ. We are excited to see what God is going to do at North Brooklyn Baptist Church. We invite you to join us for one of our services.

North Brooklyn Baptist Church is an outreach work of the Open Door Bible Baptist Church of Astoria.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our services include a time of fellowship over coffee, hymn singing, and a sermon. Occasionally we have testimonies and music from the congregation or visiting ministers. We meet in a rented commercial space that is full of character. Our services typically last one hour.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You do not need to be a Baptist or even a Christian to attend our services. We invite you to come hear the preaching and talk with us about any questions you might have. Pastor Mike is available most days to sit down with you or your family to discuss any questions you have about God and the Bible. Being a Christian is not inherited or part of your national identity, every person must come to a decision for himself/herself about Jesus Christ. We would be honored to open the Bible and help guide you in this decision.

Michael Newburger

Pastor Newburger is a Maryland native. He met his wife Kelly in high school when she invited him to attend her church. He received Christ as his Savior after a revival service at the First Baptist Church of Deale, Maryland. Mike and Kelly were married after both graduated from college. Pastor Newburger has earned a B.A. in Biblical Studies from Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City, OK. He has served in two churches as a ministry intern and in one as an Associate Pastor. In 2010, the Newburgers moved to Astoria, Queens to work under the ministry of the Open Door Bible Baptist Church. There they began to learn the realities of life and ministry in the inner-city. This church is now sending them to Greenpoint to "plant" a new church. Pastor Newburger was formally ordained by the Open Door Bible Baptist Church of Astoria in 2013. The Newburgers reside in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with their three children.
