First Baptist Church of Bloomfield, New Jersey was founded in 1851 by Essex County residents who desired to meet together for worship and the study of God's Word. During all the time spanned by these photos, First Baptist has had an active involvement in the community life of Bloomfield, and a spiritual impact in the lives of it's people. Now, over 150 years later, that spiritual impact is as important as ever!
