PLEASE BE AWARE that Pay-Pal will deduct 30 cents plus 2.9 % from your total donation for their service fee.
For example: If you donate $400, Biblical Baptist Church receives $388.10, Pay-Pal receives $11.90 and $388.10 will appear on your giving statement.
We have considered other on-line payment methods and they would have charged BBC $80 per month (or more), whether anyone donates for that month or not.
For this reason Pay-Pal seems to be the best solution for on-line giving at the moment. If on-line giving increases, we will re-consider other merchant services.
Pay-pal is VERY easy to use and provides no added monthly expense for our church.
Thanks again for your support of GOD'S WORK and for investing in eternity!
Challenging,... yet true:
Malachi 3:8-10 "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."
I Corinthians 16:2 "Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come."
II Corinthians 8:8 "I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love."
Matthew 6:20-21 "But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
Mark 12:42-44 "And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living."
II Corinthians 9:7 "Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver."
REMEMBER THE PRICE THAT WAS PAID FOR US!
I Peter 1:18-19 "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot."
I Corinthians 6:20 "For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
We are so thankful for the faithful tithers and givers, and those who sacrifice willingly, again and again, of their TIME and financial resources to continue and further the work of God. We never seem to have an abundance,... and we have struggled just to make it many times - But God has always come through "Just In Time" to pay our bills - and he chooses to use people just like you to do it! Glory To God! He is Good!

Existing Regular Needs:
Monthly expenses: Mortgage, electric, gas, insurance, phone, salaries, employees, contractors, maintainence costs for buildings inside and out (5 buildings), busses and vans (insurance, gas, repairs/maintainence), office equipment and paper supplies, cleaning materials and much more. These expenses are covered by tithes and offerings or "unspecified giving". This is the most common and most needed kind of giving to keep all of our regular monthly expenses paid and keep everything going forward.
MOST PRESSING IMMEDIATE NEED:
A newer Van !
$18,000 - $28,000 will be what we need to obtain a safe reliable, rust free 15 passenger van.
We always have many needs, but we are very focused right now especially on paying off our current mortgage. At the time of this update... (4-7-2023) we are at a balance of $284,000. We are very thankful and blessed to have secured a brand new loan with the Christian Community Credit Union at the great rate of 4.5%. However this rate will increase every 5 years. We are trusting the Lord, through the generosity of his people that we will be able to pay off this loan within 5 years (SUPER GOAL), 3 years (Super-AWESOME GOAL), or even less than 1 year!! ...And to that we will definitely say: "THAT WAS GOD!"
We are so thankful to Christian Community Credit Union for supplying us with this much needed mortgage! But we will ALSO be much MORE thankful and BLESSED by GOD when it is totally paid off, freeing us up to do much more to advance the GOSPEL of our LORD!
PARKING LOT REPAIRS:
Parking Lot NEEDS repaved on the west (older) end, and patched/resealed on the east (newer) portion. Estimates are $35-40,000 for this project.
