Why do we give?
Proverbs 3:9, "Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops..."

Jesus taught that our money is an indicator of our hearts, and Paul taught that if we are loved by God and love Him in return, we would give cheerfully, sacrificially, and regularly.

The Bible teaches that God is the Owner of everything, including our money and possessions. When we give, we give back to God what He already owns. Our giving is an indication of trust, discipleship, and commitment. We believe that the minimum Biblical standard for giving is 10%, commonly called a 'tithe'.

How does my Online Giving support the church?
Broadway Baptist Church prepares and adopts an annual budget. This budget is carefully prepared with detailed planning spanning many months. The budget is an operating tool that guides our church in ministry, missions, and operations. It is important that every member and attendee understand their God-given role in supporting the financial needs of the church through systematic giving (tithing) to the church. Giving envelopes are mailed to each church family monthly and provided in the Worship Center. Online Giving weekly or monthly scheduled gifts help our church budget and plan to better serve God's work for our church.
