Cascade Park Baptist Church began in April 1981 through the vision of the North American Baptist Conference. Rev. Don Ganstrom was called to begin the new work. Through his efforts, a nucleus was formed and a Bible study began. In February, 1982, Pastor Phil Yntema and his family were called to be the pastor of the church. In September 1985 the church sanctuary and adjoining classrooms were completed. In 1986 a Director of Student Ministries was added to the staff and in October 1987 a Director of Music Ministries.
Because of the tremendous growth experienced throughout the Sunday School, a new Christian Education facility was built and dedicated in May 1988. In August of that year an Associate Pastor was added to the staff and in October 1989 a Pastor of Youth & Single Adults was added.
