A must see in Camden. There is a memorial wall of all the fallen heroes from Camden. For you photo buffs, he steeple has has a century old clock that has perfect lighting at twilight.

Interesting church.....gathered in early 1800s and built 30 years after. Typical white church, on a gentle slope. Church lawn is set back from the main road, so you can enjoy a shady rest on a park bench. There's a sign outside indicating a fundraiser of > $500,000 needed to save and renovate the only historical clock in Camden.

My experience visiting this church was a very positive and memorable experience. Pastor Adam always goes out of his way to greet you, and make you feel comfortable and welcome, especially if it is your first time visiting or vacationing. The congregation is a Bible-believing group that reach out to you, would highly recommend this church if you are looking... More

This is a grand church that is 200+ years old. They are raising money to repair the enormous steeple and spire. The bells toll he hours of the day. Kinda' reassuring sound that soothes the heart. Get a photo of this city icon!

The people who greeted me were harsh and angry. I hated my visit. When I visit another church I want to worship in a safe environment, but was abused by the church members, who treated me like an outsider. Would God want this?

You can see the steeple from almost everywhere you go in Camden, Maine. We stayed right across from this while we were in the area, and on Sunday morning, they keep the front doors open (during the Summer anyway) so you can hear the church hymns from the street.

Very pretty and all through the night on the hour heard the church bells chime. After the first night got use to listening to them and they did not wake us up.

Coming into Camden from the north on Main Street the steeple of the First Baptist Church catches your eye immediately. Following the Main Street though Camden you will arrive at a small Veteran's Memorial Park on your left and beside it the Chestnut Street Baptist Church. We have attended service there a few times over the years and found the... More

CSBC was within easy walking distance of our B&B. It was nice finding a vibrant and uplifting church in which to worship while away from our home church.

I found it unusual to have the sanctuary located upstairs. They have a wonderful live nativity the first weekend in December during the Christmas by Sea events in Camden. Worth the wait.
