BAYVIEW EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH
Bayview Church is a member of the Evangelical Free Church of Canada. Our shared motto is, "In essentials unity; in non-essentials charity; in all things Jesus Christ".
The Evangelical Free Church...
Is evangelical but not separatist
Is ecumenical in spirit, though not in structure
Believes in liberty with responsibility
Believes in both the rational and relational dimensions of Christianity
Is congregational in government.
Our mission is to develop and encourage a strong, loving congregation through solid Biblical teaching/preaching by which the love of Christ will be reflected in worship, programs, outreach, and practical Christian living.
Our vision is to grow in our love for God and His word, reflecting Christ's love to all.
Pastors Richard and Judy Gilbert are excited to welcome you to Bayview Church, to immerse you in the word of God, and to spend time in worship with you.
Judy and Richard completed their biblical studies through the Salvation Army, where they both served as pastors and administrators for 34 years. Judy and Richard also served in pastoral and administrative ministries throughout Canada and France. In their most recent ministry, prior to moving to the Interlake region of Manitoba, Judy served as Director of Chaplaincy and Richard as Clinical Director of the Salvation Army Treatment Centre in Vancouver’s East End. Judy and Richard moved to Manitoba's Interlake in the summer of 2013 and began to attend Bayview Evangelical Free Church at that time. Richard and Judy are now both retired, but continue to minister to members of Bayview's congregation, and to the community of Gimli at large.
A Typical Sunday Morning at Bayview

How to Get Involved
