Why do we give at First Southern Baptist Church of Prescott Valley?
The simple answer is we believe everything we have comes from God in the first place. We give because we believe God has entrusted us to be leaders for hope in our church and our community.
What does “tithe” mean?
The Bible teaches that a guideline for giving is called the tithe (Leviticus 27:30). That is giving 10% of what we earn back to God.
What does “offering” mean?
An offering is a gift given to a specific need above and beyond our tithe.
What the Bible teaches:
Giving acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have. (James 1:17)
Giving reflects our trust that God will provide for us. (Matthew 6:19-24)
Giving allows us to be active participants in God’s work on earth. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)

A Word about Debt
While convenience and value are good, debt is bad! So, for those of you who are not in the habit of paying your monthly credit card balances in full (which we encourage you to do), please use the debit card or automatic check withdrawal feature (online only) to avoid debt.
For those who do pay off your credit card balances and would find it a greater convenience and value to put your donation on a credit card, you may do so. A quote from our Financial Peace University Plan Course cautions “… that credit cards should only be used for purchases/donations that are included in the family Spending Plan”.
