History of Gila Valley Baptist Church
Gila Valley Baptist
Church began in 1960 as a mission of the First Baptist Church of Lordsburg, New
Mexico. Ten people joined together to form the mission group. Construction of
the church began in 1979 with church members providing the labor and was debt
free upon completion. The new building
was dedicated on May 24, 1981 and our congregation was constituted as a church.
Valley Baptist Church has had three pastors and two interim pastors:
Kenneth Henderson, 1981-1988, Horace Kennedy,
1988-1989 (interim), Walter Huber, 1989-2002, Tar Henderson, 2004-2016, Dan
Grindstaff, September 2016 (interim), Full-Time, November 2016-.
The people of Gila Valley Baptist Church have been the
recipients of God's wonderful blessings throughout the years. By God's grace we
have remained faithful to live out our mission of Exalting the Savior,
Equipping the Saints, and Evangelizing the Sinner in our community. This church
remains strong being built on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ, guided by
God's Word, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. May we continue to mature as
disciples of Christ, demonstrating love, generosity, commitment and unity all
for God's glory.
