About Us

Gibbon Baptist Church traces its history back to First Regular Baptist Church established in Gibbon in 1872. The church was reorganized as Gibbon Baptist Church on July 21, 1888.In 1889, Gibbon Baptist Church built its first building at the corner of 2nd and Court Streets. A major addition and remodel was completed on that facility in 1949.Since 1966, Gibbon Baptist Church has worshiped at our current location at the corner of 7th Street and Court.We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA (ABCUSA).


We believe the good news of Jesus is for all people, and that every Christian is gifted for ministry and leadership in Christ’s church.
