Biblical Counseling

We believe in the sufficiency and authority of God’s Word for all things pertaining to life and godliness. We also believe that it is God’s design for His people to be connected with one another for the building up of the church in love (Ephesians 4:16). The elders of Gilbert Bible Church are committed to both shepherding and caring for its members and regular attenders and equipping the saints for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12; I Peter 5:1-2).
