Brookdale Baptist Church, incorporated on June 5, 1894, began as a mission church of First Baptist Church of Bloomfield, N.J. From its tiny beginning, the church progressed steadily over the years, growing out of two church buildings into its present facility. Brookdale's rich history includes sending out many of its own members as missionaries and pastors around the globe.

Brookdale offers a wide variety of ministries including weekly worship - with all manner of instruments and voices - and nursery for infants and toddlers. We have multiple weekly opportunities for group prayer and participate monthly in Essex County Cry for Awakening prayer and worship meetings. Our congregation meets several times a year for Body Life meetings, Family Life meetings and summer outdoor picnics.

Weekly ministries are geared specifically to men (including a monthly men's fellowship breakfast), women (including a weekly ladies prayer meeting and monthly JOY luncheon), children (Kidszone, and KidzKlub meetings and summer vacation Bible school), youth ministry (OASIS Teen Bible Club and frequent special events including Saturday Night Live events), college age adults (Genesis fellowship and frequent partnerships with Montclair State University's Intervarsity Fellowship).

Growth in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus is encouraged at weekly Marketplace for all ages. Our resource center holds numerous, books, tapes, and DVD's for both learning and just plain fun!

The church campus is home to Foundations Prep School / Brookdale Christian Academy, serving parents of children day care age through kindergarten.

Brookdale Baptist Church preaches and teaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ, believing that the inerrant Scriptures are as relevant and practical today as they were when first penned by the Biblical writers.

Brookdale Baptist Church, 15 miles from New York City, reflects the cultural and ethnic diversity of the New York metropolitan area and our surrounding neighborhoods. If you are seeking a warm, friendly church home, we welcome you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
