The Importance of Giving 

The history of giving at First Baptist Seminole in times of unrest is amazing. I’m inspired by the faithfulness of this Body of Christ to the mission of the Church! 

As a church body, your tithe is extremely important, and we ask that you continue to give faithfully in this area. All of your giving during this unprecedented time will strengthen our church to minister to the people of our own community and beyond. Even as we go through the global pandemic of COVID-19, we know that eternity is at stake and the Gospel of Jesus is our only hope. You can give your tithes and additional financial contributions online at or by clicking HERE. You can also text ‘fbcgive Offering’ and the amount to 73256 to give via text. 

Additionally, if you prefer to bring your tithes/offerings to the church you can do so by coming to the security entrance located nearest to our office.
