About Us

First Baptist Church of Gilbert was founded in 1952 and has been growing and thriving in the Gilbert community ever since.  FBCG’s ministry statement is “Christ Centered, Community Focused,” and every ministry of the church is developed around this idea. It was founded on a strong belief in serving the Lord and a strong passion to reach non-believers, both in the community around them and across the world. First Baptist Church of Gilbert provides a warm, encouraging environment that allows visitors and members alike to learn more about God, mature in their walk with God, and grow together with other believers through fellowship.
The congregation of FBCG is very inviting and friendly. The members are all from different walks of life–from newborns to senior adults. The diversity exhibited at First Baptist Church of Gilbert creates a strong family-like atmosphere. There are many different programs, Sunday School classes, Bible studies, mission opportunities, and special outings offered by FBCG to encourage the spiritual growth of each individual. 
The service presented each Sunday morning is a unique blend of both traditional and contemporary elements.  This blended service is meant to include every member and every visitor to help them feel engaged in the worship songs and the teaching. It also adds to the family-like atmosphere because it is a united service that brings together those who enjoy traditional worship styles and those who prefer contemporary worship styles. 

What We Believe

Our Christian beliefs as well as our church foundations and values are based on The Baptist Faith and Message (2000) that is accepted by the Southern Baptist Convention.
