Gila Valley Baptist Church is located on Highway 211 in Gila, New Mexico.

Our church is located directly across from the Gila Senior Center and Post Office.

We would like to invite you to any of our worship services, or fellowship events.

Lord, thank You for Your grace and forgiveness and new beginnings.

No matter what lies in our past, when we confess our sin,

God forgives us and gives us a fresh start.

What great cause for hope!

God’s grace offers us fresh starts.

Everyone whose heart God had moved—prepared to go up and build the house of the Lord in Jerusalem. Ezra 1:5

Operation Christmas Child 2020

Coming in November! This year we have had monthly suggestions for gifts to buy for our shoeboxes. Hopefully, you have been encouraged to pack early and to pack lots of boxes. Last year we packed 128 boxes, an amazing record for our church. Although this has been a difficult year for many, it will be the perfect time to show our love for children around the world. Packing shoeboxes not only gives joy to the receiver but it also blesses the giver. Kick-off for our annual drive will be November 1st. The collection day will be November 22nd. Please pray for this ministry. We are looking forward to collecting lots of boxes in 2020. 

Find a person today and encourage them, whether they are in Christ or not. We are to be encouragers to all whom we meet. There is already enough discouragement in this world, so be a glass-half-full person and not glass-half-empty. In fact, just be thankful you even have a glass!          (by Jack Wellman)

1 Thessalonians 5:11      “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”

God’s priority is your ​heart.

Nursery Workers

If you would like to help in the nursery during the Morning Worship Service, please contact the church office.

Like any organization, a church needs a way to get in touch with its congregation quickly in the event of an emergency or just for a quicker, easier form of communication. Not everyone makes it to Sunday services to hear our announcements or read our bulletin. DialMyCalls can be used for numerous announcements and to specific groups within the church. Within just a few minutes our entire church family receives a message and becomes immediately informed. As announcements need to be made, will be used. If you have any questions, visit with Brenda.

The highest form of prayer comes from the depths of a humble heart.
