when the citizens came over from England they didn't like their religion so the framers wanted their people to have the freedom to choose religion and the right to petition and the right to trial by jury and write what they want in the press and freedom of Assembly

So, overall:

The First Amendment is important because it ensures the right of religious and Political freedom.

This amendment was put in place to make sure the federal government does not become to powerful. But as we see nowadays, the politicians have pretty much ignored this amendment.

Actually there are different classifications of the bill of rights. First off, the most important are the first 10. Amendment 1 states that we have the freedom of speech, press and assembly and so far that is the most important Amendment.
