Here at First Baptist Church Tomball, we understand there are lots of questions someone may have when it comes to giving, especially if you're new to church. Here are some common questions we get when it comes to giving:
Why do we give?
One of the great transformational aspects of meeting Jesus is the new desire to give and share. He creates generous hearts in us. In the Lord’s Prayer we are invited to participate with God as He moves here on earth. Jesus tells us to pray, “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10, CSB). Every time we give to a ministry we are making that prayer come true in our life and the lives around us. God enjoys our generosity, “God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7, CSB). We give because God has changed our hearts to embrace generosity and we know our gifts touch people’s lives. There is amazing satisfaction in doing what God has enabled and empowered us to do
Where does my money go?
All gifts are used to honor God and further His kingdom. At least ten percent of the gifts received by First Baptist Church Tomball are given away to partner ministries. Even as a church we practice the new generosity God has created in us. We operate our ministries from these gifts. Across every spectrum of age or demographic we can touch people with the love of Jesus. We have boring expenses just like you: utilities, maintenance, etc, but we always stay focused on how we can best use our resources to accomplish the task of sharing the message of hope found in Jesus. If you would like detailed information, our Finance Office will gladly send you a copy of our current budget.
What is the Tomball Parkway campus?
The Tomball Parkway Campus is the future home of First Baptist Church. We have begun a journey to move to a more strategic and accessible location. All gifts to the Parkway Campus are used to accomplish this dream. The new campus is at 29100 Tomball Parkway (east side, northbound, just north of FM 2920)
How can I give?
First, determine for yourself what you want to give. Paul’s advice to the early church was that “each person should do as he has decided in his heart – not reluctantly or out of compulsion” (2 Corinthians 9:7, CSB) Once you know what you want to give a variety of options are available.
