Why do we give to the local church?
"The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it..." —Psalm 24:1
1. As Christ Followers, we believe that we are stewards (managers) of God's resources because He is the owner of all that we have. Throughout the Bible, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. His Word tells us that giving is an act of worship that should be done with a spirit of thanksgiving.
2. Giving our tithe is so much more than keeping the lights on. It's an act of obedience that allows our church to have a greater impact; to see lives changed and pointed to Jesus Christ. When you give you are playing a vital role in touching lives and growing in your personal faith in Jesus Christ.

Note: A portion of each online transaction goes towards our merchant host. We are committed to being good stewards with your generosity and using the largest portion for what it was intended for—making a difference. Your financial partnership with BCOB is helping advance the Good News of Jesus Christ!
Please know that the online giving does not make a distinction regarding a debit card or a credit card. We do strongly suggest that no one use a credit card unless it is paid off every month.
The Bible speaks in Proverbs 22:7 about “…the borrower [being] servant to the lender.”
We do not wish our congregation to go into debt by tithing on a credit card.
