The Tithe is our Biblical offering to the Lord to grow His church and bear witness to Christ locally. The Tithe is the economic engine of our mission in growing a strong multi-campus church. We encourage all members to support the church through One Fund. As a part of One Fund the church is now also directing $225,000 to the Christian Care Center annually, so a certain portion of each One Fund gift goes to support the Christian Care Center, Lottie Moon Offering and other local and global mission efforts.

If you wish to make an above-tithe gift to Lottie Moon, the Christian Care Center, Community Medical Care Center, First Academy Preschool or First Academy you can go directly to their websites to make a donation. Additionally, above-tithe gifts can be directed to First Baptist Missions to support a specific church missions trip. Our Building and Debt Reduction Fund is to pay off mortgage debt on the Village Park and South campuses as well as to renovate the Downtown Campus. If you would like additional financial information, you are welcome to contact the Executive Pastor at or (352) 787-1005.
