Gila Valley Baptist Church Anniversary

In April 1960 Gila Valley Baptist Mission was started with the aid of First Baptist Church of Lordsburg. We became independent and organized as a church in May 1981. Gila Valley Baptist is now 60 years old, thank you to the 10 original, dedicated and faithful people that followed God’s will and formed the Mission. 

Eddy was able to load the 30th Anniversary Service videos onto the church's YouTube channel. You can find it at this link: Gila Valley Baptist Church YouTube channel link:
