Gila Valley Baptist Church

Exalting the Savior, Equipping the Saints, Evangelizing the Sinner


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

Whether you're sitting in our church service, traveling during the summer, or confined to your home due to bad weather, you can give your offering securely when the time is right for you. 


Either use the "Give" button below or just open your personalized Tithe.ly app on any device.


(With a Tithe.ly account, you can give your offering/tithe without re-entering your giving information every time. Simply hit the QuickGive™ button to give in 1-click or the standard Give button that allows you to enter your offering amount and choose to cover card fees.  You can also setup auto-recurring giving! Recurring giving ensures you never miss a chance to give! Whether you give weekly, monthly, on the 1st and 15, or on some other schedule, Tithe.ly makes it simple for you to set up your regular tithe that is automatically given.   If you haven’t already, download the Tithe.ly app today!)

Fall 2020 Youth Calendar:

December 2nd

December 16th--Christmas Event 

**Schedule is subject to change 

Our 180 Youth Group is once again meeting in person. We are so excited to be able to gather together again and learn more about and grow closer to God. Currently, we are meeting for Bible Study from 7:00-8:00 p.m. We hope to be back to our regular meetings very soon. During this time though, we are taking advantage of the YouVerson Bible App which has given us an opportunity to study together throughout the week and then discuss what we've studied at our bi-weekly meetings. On this app, we have been able to discuss together each day how God is speaking to us through his word and the study. This has been such a blessing to me, and I know others. Things may look different right now, but it is no surprise to God, and he is providing ways for us to connect even better than we did before. God is working, always working, and we are so thankful for his living word and the many ways we can study together. If you need more information about the app or our studies, please do not hesitate to ask. 

 

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.

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, Dialmycalls.com will be used. If you have any questions, visit with Brenda.
