The third church denomination to come to Newark were the Baptists. Officially the First Baptist (Peddie Memorial) Church was the original Baptist Church. This is because the Elizabeth Avenue (Lyons Farms) Baptist Church was located on land that was not part of Newark until 1902. New Jersey Baptists developed from its original church to Newark in this manner: The first church was established in Middletown, Monmouth County in 1667. The Piscataway Baptist Church (the land is now in Edison, Middlesex County) was organized in 1686. The Scotch Plains Baptist Church was formed in 1747 from the Piscataway Church. The Lyons Farms Baptist Church was formed from the Scotch Plains Baptist Church in 1769. The First Baptist Church of Newark was formed from the Lyons Farms Baptist Church in 1801.
