We are People on Mission for God!

The sweet fellowship of First Baptist Church Gilmer is a non-judgmental atmosphere of unconditional love! We don’t claim to have it all together and we don’t expect you to have it all together either. We just want to love our Savior by serving the community where we live, work and raise our families! We want to know you and to help Gilmer, Upshur County, Texas experience the abundant life that Jesus offers! We just can’t keep the Good News to ourselves! See you on the streets! Come serve, study and worship with us too!
His ……Therefore Yours,
Mike Kessler, Pastor
