The story is told that the young daughter of Richard Garnett asked her father why there was no Baptist Church in Glasgow. She persisted that Glasgow needed a Baptist church! Her father saw her vision and the first services were held in their home until a church building could be built. The following quotation shows the beginning of Glasgow Baptist Church: “The Baptists had no organized church in Glasgow until 1818 when they instituted an informal one.”
First church meeting recorded second Saturday in February 1818.
Next year Glasgow Baptist will celebrate 200 years of sharing the Gospel. 2018 will be a time of celebration of God's goodness and His grace. We hope you will join us as we reflect on all that God had done through GBC.
