What We Believe About Giving / Why do we give
We believe in giving the tithe - ten percent of our income - as the biblical standard of giving. The tithe is to be given as an undesignated offering to the “storehouse” ministry of a local church. According to the Scriptures, we are to give cheerfully, regularly, systematically, proportionately, and liberally for the advancement of Christ’s cause on earth.
This money affords us the opportunity to care for our members and attendees and help them grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. It gives us the opportunity to reach out to our community through dozens of ministries and programs, meeting needs where they are. It gives each of us the opportunity to use our God-given talents to serve those in need. It affords us the opportunity to cooperate with our local Baptist churches and with North American and Foreign Mission efforts to reach the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Ways to Give
Depending on your bank, you can set up a tithe through their automatic billpay. This is similar to online payment, but an actual physical check is written from your bank and mailed to the church. You can schedule one-time gifts or schedule recurring donations. THIS METHOD IS FEE FREE.
You can give by placing your gift in the offering plate as it passes during any of our Worship Services. Envelopes can always be found in the back of the pews. Giving envelopes are also available through the mail. If you would like to receive envelopes mailed monthly to your home, please contact the church financial office at 770-943-9333, ext. 202. The church absorbs the cost of the envelopes and mailing.
Online giving accepts credit or debit cards only. You can give one-time gifts or schedule recurring donations. Fees are 2% to 4% per transaction. The church absorbs these fees.
If you prefer, you can mail a check straight to us. The church’s address is: 4330 North Avenue, Powder Springs, GA 30127. Attn: Finance Office.
