Giving at South Delta Baptist Church

Our Giving:

  • shows respect for God by following biblical principles (Malachi 3:10; Luke 6:38);
  • helps us see lives transformed by the gospel; and
  • supports our partners who spread the gospel locally and globally.

If SDBC is your home church, feel free to use any of the options below to give to the ministry. As a matter of practice and principle, all gifts are allotted to SDBC's general budget unless a special project has been approved.

If you are outside our area and want to give, we appreciate your support.

We thank you for your faithful giving.

How Your Donations Help

We believe that God expects his church to be generous givers. Jesus taught that "it is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). God challenges his people to give and see how God blesses the lives of faithful givers (Malachi 3:10). At SDBC, we do not teach prosperity gospel; meaning that we do not believe that your giving will always result in wealth and health for you and your family. In fact, we do not even ask you to give expecting those things in return. We call you to consider giving to the Lord's work through his church because we believe God gave us all that we have, and that we are expressing our gratitude by giving a portion of it back to him. We also believe that giving to God's church is an expression of our commitment to God's mission. Matthew 6:21 says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Our heart is with God in his amazing mission to save his people through his gospel. We believe God's grace ultimately expressed in Jesus' death on the cross compels us to give to God's work that shares this gospel with our city and beyond. We want to see our city transformed by the gospel; we want to see Jesus be Lord in our homes and neighbourhoods; we want to experience God's goodness and love present in our community through his church. So, we give joyfully; not reluctantly (2 Corinthians 9:7).

Giving FAQ

  1. Annual tax receipts are issued at the end of February of the following year.
  2. The Board of Elders may, from time to time, approve a fund for a designated purpose to which individuals may direct contributions. Such a fund will be called a “Donor Designated Fund” and the spending of its funds is to be confined to its approved programs and projects. Contributions to such a fund may have a time period limitation.
  3. Contributions to designated funds may have an amount limitation beyond which any additional contribution will be directed by the Board of Elders. Such a fund may be operational for a limited period of time after which the remaining funds will be directed by the Board of Elders. Each contribution received for such a fund will be used as restricted with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by the Board of Elders, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where most needed.
