Hello!! We’re glad you took the time to visit our website, and hope you’ll find what you need to know right here.
Gem City Baptist Church was started in the Hannibal home of Pastor and Mrs. Rimi in March, 2008, met at 2821 Oak Street (the Seventh Day Adventist building), in Quincy, Illinois, from April, 2008, until March, 2017.
In October, 2016, GCBC purchased a vacant former church building at 901 N. 4th Street, Quincy, and began renovations. The first service at this new location was held March 26, 2017.
Gem City Baptist Church is an evangelistic independent, fundamental Baptist church, While many churches use contemporary themes, Gem City Baptist Church is an old-fashioned, Bible-believing church, standing on the old-time Gospel… singing the old-time songs and hymns of the faith… and seeking to reach souls for Christ in the Quincy region and beyond. And we use the good old King James Bible.
We offer Sunday School for all ages, and a van ministry. (NOTE: To ride our van, a child must be at least six years old.) A Junior Church service is also conducted concurrent with the regular morning service, and a nursery facility is made available for all services.
Gem City Baptist Church actively supports Gospel-preaching missionaries around the world. See our missions page for more information.
Gem City is a church where everyone counts. We hope you’ll visit, and be counted, too!
