Welcome to Gretna Baptist Church We are a fellowship of believers committed to building strong relationships within the church and community - creating an atmosphere for people to discover, grow, and model their faith in Christ.
The epistle of Paul to the Ephesians begins with a salutation “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Paul’s salutation includes the writer, the recipient, and the greeting proper, which follows the style of other letters of his time. Paul’s salutations add a new flavor, however, due to the meaning of the words “grace” and “peace” for believers in Christ.
Join us this Sunday as we explore in word and deed the meaning of this Salutation of "Grace and Peace!" We rejoice in the baptism of Alaina Viox during our worship Service. See you Sunday! ... See MoreSee Less

Nehemiah trusted that God would keep His promise to protect His people and give them a home. When we trust in Jesus, we believe God will keep His promise to give us a home. Jesus obeyed God perfectly. He died on the cross and rose again so we can have a home with Him forever. Join us for Sunday School tomorrow at 9:15am ... See MoreSee Less
Perhaps more than any other book of the Bible, the Book of Ephesians emphasizes the connection between sound doctrine and right practice in the Christian life.
Far too often we ignore or downplay "theology" and instead want to only discuss things that are "practical." In Ephesians, Paul argues that theology is practical. In order to live out God's will for us in our lives practically, we must first understand who we are in Christ doctrinally.
Join us this Sunday as we continue the Introduction to our RESET series in the book of Ephesians. ... See MoreSee Less
