BENEFITS OF ONLINE GIVING
There are several benefits to online giving — for you and the church.
In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are given to God.
You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.
Online giving is more secure than giving with a check. Electronic gifts can’t be lost or stolen.
Instead of worrying about writing your contribution check during the service, you can be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.

WHAT IS A TITHE, AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM AN OFFERING?
The word “tithe” literally means tenth or 10%. A tithe is the first 10% of your income. An “offering” is anything you give above and beyond the 10%.
WHY DO WE TITHE?
IS GOD WISE? DO YOU TRUST HIM?
These are two fundamental questions behind the act of giving. If God is wise, then you should listen to what He says about financial stewardship. If you trust Him, then you should trust Him will ALL aspects of your life, including your finances. So go head. Accept God’s invitation to put Him to the test. Start tithing faithfully and watch what He does in and through your life.
Credit Card Policy
We do accept debit cards, but we do not accept credit cards.
However, we want to say up front that our website debit card processing vendor handles debit cards just like credit cards. That means there’s no way for us to allow our members to use debit cards without opening up the possibility for them to use credit cards. Golden Gate Missionary Baptist Church encourages you to live a debt-free lifestyle and would ask you to exercise integrity and only give to the church from the cash you have in your bank account.
