Giving at First Baptist Church
Why do people give to their local church?
A tithe—which just means "tenth"—is defined as the first 10% of a person's income. So why is that important, and how does it affect you? Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives. Bringing our tithe to a local church is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show Him we trust Him, and fight against greed. Giving regularly allows us to be a part of the most important work in life—spreading the good news of Jesus Christ! If you would like to read more about what the Bible has to say about tithing, check out these passages: Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24, and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.
New Online Giving Portal (3/14/2020)
As of 3/14/2020, we have set up a new online giving portal. If you have given online in the past, we ask that you set up a new account through the portal below. We have switched church management software at FBC and this includes a new giving portal. This is great for FBC for several reasons. First, the merchant charge for online giving has decreased with the new software. This means, it cost the church less to receive tithes and offerings online. Also, this software has the option for the giver to cover the cost (don't feel obligated to do so). While you can use credit and debit cards, the cheapest way is through ACH. This is a direct debit from your bank account and each transaction only cost .25¢. It is very simple to set this up, just follow the props below. Second, the new software has a ton more options which will serve our church well into the future.
Don't worry, we are importing all of your current data into the new system so our records will remain the same! All of these options are secure and safe.
Or download our church app through google play or App Store:
Once you download the app you will be able to find our church and set up a profile easily and quickly and be connected!
Or simply text to give
Text the number—84321 with a dollar amount.
You will then be prompted to set up giving through text. It only takes a minute or so!
