Why give? We believe there is a Biblical directive for stewardship of our financial resources. One way for church attendees to be good stewards and honor God is to support the church and its ministries through tithes and offerings. While a tithe represents “a tenth” of our income, we believe God directs us to be sacrificial givers.
What does my gift support? Your gift enables Temple Baptist Church to fulfill its mission and vision to proclaim the Word of God, grow Christ-followers, reach the spiritually lost, support missionaries and mission-related agencies and maintain our campus facilities.
