Is it time for something simple, different and fulfilling?

We extend a most heartfelt welcome to you, your friends and family to join us! Simple Faith Church services are a comfortable but mature atmosphere. There are no dress requirements, no “lofty” preaching, no pomp or pretentious activities.

The focus is on meaningful discussion and enlightening exploration of the scriptures and the true Christian beliefs outlined in them.

The teaching is always directly from the scriptures and is performed in an easy to understand “verse by verse expository” style. Our goal is to promote Bible literacy and encourage Christians to have a deeper - yet practical understanding of the faith.

Come visit with us!

Our Story


Simple Faith Church, a Calvary Chapel Affiliate, is a Christian fellowship made up of people from Bloomfield New Jersey and it's surrounding communities. We are "regular folks" who have experienced first hand the mercy and forgiveness of God through Jesus Christ. We have seen God dramatically touch lives giving peace and joy where once confusion and hopelessness resided. We have seen God do all this through His great ability, His Spirit and His Word given to us - the scriptures, the Holy Bible. The Bible is our guide, and we have found that it contains everything that is needed for life and Godliness.
Many Christian churches teach Biblical things, even teaching some things directly from the Bible itself. What makes Simple Faith Church even more unique in our community is that we teach THROUGH THE BIBLE VERSE BY VERSE, BOOK BY BOOK - and in an easy to follow, understandable way.

In addition to facilitating Bible literacy, the overall mission of Simple Faith Church is found in Ephesians 4:11-16:

    …And He [Jesus] Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,

      for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;

    that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ – from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
Simple Faith Church / Calvary Chapel has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only to their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ:

We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s Agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.

We believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.

We believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give an important place to music in our worship.

We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.

We believe worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping Him.

We believe in all the basic doctrines of historic Christianity.

We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible Word of God.

We believe that God is eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that God is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His substitutionary death on the cross, was bodily raised from the dead, ascended back to the right hand of the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.

We believe in the personal, visible, and pre-millennial second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth. He will return with His saints and set up a kingdom of which there will be no end. After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.

We believe that all people are, by nature, separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.

We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures, and that they are valid for today if they are exercised within the scriptural guidelines. We as believers are to covet the best gifts, seeking to exercise them in love that the whole Body of Christ might be edified.

We believe that love is more important than the most spectacular gifts, and without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.
