Our History

Gowen Bible Church was founded in Gowen. The building property was deeded to the First BAptist Church of Gowen Bible by James Gowen in 1890 with the building being completed the following year in 1891 crafted from lumber milled in the mill town of Gowen. The church building in one of only a few buildings remaining from that original town.

The church has passed through many phases and many ators and people over the last hundred years. Today GBC exsists to reach the people of Gowen and the surrounding area with the unchanging love of Jesus and the hope that he offers.

The needs of 21st-century communities seem to be growing by the day. Over the years, we have learned that what people need most is someone who will listen to their concerns - someone they can turn to for support when the going gets tough, and someone who can skillfully show them from God's Word the Way He desires for us to live. And that's what Gowen Bible Church is all about.
