Welcome to Russellville’s First Baptist Church online giving system. Our church is supported by the donations of our faith family, who are following the biblical model for stewardship, and our Financial Office ensures the faithful accounting and stewardship of these resources.
Online giving is a simple and efficient way to give your tithes and offerings from the privacy of your home. When you give online, you can designate gifts for the purposes listed below. Any other gifts must be given manually through the Sunday offering.
Tithes and Offerings
These donations go towards the Operating Budget of the Church. You can either give a one-time donation or you can setup recurring gifts by selecting the “General Budget” link below. If you are currently receiving offering envelopes and you sign up for recurring donations, you will no longer receive offering envelopes in the mail.
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.” (Malachi 3:10)
FBC has long operated under the principle of being debt free. With any capital campaign that we take on, we make it the intention of the church to avoid long-term indebtedness. As scripture says, our goal is to owe nothing to anybody except for love. Therefore, as we close in on building a new sanctuary (estimated 2015 or 2016), all funds given to the building fund will help us pay for this project and finish with no financial debts.
As FBC continues to grow and reach the world for Christ, however, we strive to maintain the principle of operating debt free. If you would like to continue to give to the building fund of FBC, just click “Building Fund” below.
World Missions Offering
On April 8th, we held the 2nd annual Missions Banquet. At this event we shared the nuts and bolts of all our missions efforts in 2014 and beyond. The goal for FBC in 2014 was set at $325,000.
This year’s World Mission Fund will cover all of the normal SBC offerings that FBC collects for missions including Lottie Moon, Dixie Jackson, and Annie Armstrong. In addition, the fund will cover FBC’s in-house mission efforts as well, including Kenya, El Salvador, San Diego, Perryville, Foreign Bibles, Foreign Buildings and Foreign Seminaries.
Through August 31st, we have given approximately $160,000 to this fund for these efforts. Please pray about how you can be a part of the World Missions Offering which seeks to make Christ known in Russellville, Arkansas, the United States, and to the ends of the earth.
