At Bethel International Church, we consider giving to be a privilege and ongoing practice as an act of worship to God and generosity to His work. We believe giving financially to a church and towards other mission endeavours is a key way to participate in the mission of Jesus.
According to Scripture, we believe in the tithing principle, which is reflected in giving back one-tenth of what God has graciously provided for us. Giving is never to be done out of compulsion or motivated by guilt but rather with gratitude and as an expression of trust in God for our welfare (see 2 Corinthians 9:7). But generosity need not stop there as giving is encouraged beyond a “tithe”, such as offerings toward missionary partnership or other specific projects. Furthermore, as you give, know that Bethel International Church is committed to faithfully stewarding the funds that are given. Thank you for your faithfulness and generosity.
Here are several ways that you can give:
Follow the instructions and give any time through our online giving portal HERE. You also have the option to set up recurring giving. We are currently not able to process debit card giving online.
Disclaimer: Giving by credit card is offered for the sake of your convenience - we do not encourage giving that incurs debt.
TEXT TO GIVE
Simply Text any dollar amount to 84321 to give to our General Fund. If it is your first time you will be guided through a short setup process. After that, giving is pretty much instantaneous and you’ll receive a receipt by email.
You can also designate giving by texting any amount followed by missions, building, gsf to give you those specific funds. For example: “100 missions” to our Missions Fund or “100 gsf” to our Good Samaritan Fund.
GIVE IN PERSON: CASH, CHEQUE, DEBIT/CREDIT CARD
On Sundays, you can give during our offering collection via cash or cheque. Cheques can be made payable to “Bethel International Church”. You are encouraged to use an offering envelope for donation receipts to be given at the end of the year.
You can give via debit or credit card at our giving centre kiosk. If it’s your first time there is a giving centre host who can help you with instructions to use the machine. You can also a copy of your transaction in an offering envelope if you would like to receive a year-end donations receipt.
You can also mail cheques to our church office:
