Why We Give
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for tithing. When we give financially to the Lord through the local church, we put God first in our lives. Generosity is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others. We give to the Lord because we are thankful for what He has done and we want to fund ministry for others to know Him, as well.
God provides for the ministry of Fort Baptist through your generosity. We honor your gifts with faithful stewardship, ethical practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Fort Baptist remains above reproach.
Your gift helps us accomplish our mission of "Spreading the Kingdom of God into our community."
Why give online?
Giving online is a fast, simple, and secure way to give financially. Many giving companies charge extravagant fees and we lose part of your giving, but not the company we use, RebelGive. Through RebelGive we can keep 100% of your gift! RebelGive partners with the giver to cover the processing fees so that 100% of the intended gift is given to the church. Unlike most other church giving providers, RebelGive doesn’t inflate fees to keep a portion for themselves, so their processing fee is the lowest in the industry. What this means is that, by choosing to use this platform, you can have the convenience of giving online, while still allowing Fort Baptist Church to receive 100% of your generous gifts!
When you give using this new platform, there are a couple of options to give.
1.) Give online with your credit or debit card. A 1.9% convenience fee will be added to your gift.
2.) Give online with your bank account. NO FEE- no matter the size of your gift.
After clicking the green circle icon on the right of your screen, you'll follow along with a simple and easy-to-use GivingFlow. You will then have the option to give with a credit card, which will incur a 1.9% processing fee from the credit card company (which is 35% lower than standard processing fees!) But that fee can still be significant on larger gifts, so we highly recommend connecting your bank account, which will include NO FEE! This can save you money each time you give, and saves Fort Baptist thousands of dollars every year, so instead of paying fees, we can continue to impact our community with the message of Jesus!
You can also create an account, which will allow you to save your information for easy and accessible future giving.
Your online giving is secure
- Our new digital giving platform, RebelGive uses 256-bit encryption (which is the same level as every major bank) and our GivingFlows use secure tokens so that givers' information is protected. In layman's terms, RebelGive is compliant with the strictest standards governing the processing of electronic payments.
- At Fort Baptist we will never share any of your personal information. Your giving is 100% tax deductible and at the end of each year you will receive your personal Giving Report.
By using this page of our website, you can also securely pay for various events and special things we do. When you click on the giving logo and move to Rebel Give, select from the dropdown menu which item(s) you want to pay for, and your payment will be safe, secure, and easy.
