Why We Give
Investing in the Lord's work is not something God wants from us, but for us! The New Testament does not require a percentage amount, but a willing spirit. The principles of willingness and cheerfulness are discovered in the Apostle Paul's challenge to the Corinthians to give just as he purposed in his heart; not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7). It's about attitude and desire to personally invest in the making of disciples and the building of the church for the advancement of the gospel. Our Annual Report reflects on this past year and celebrates how the generosity of so many at Colonial impacted God's church, our community and the world for His glory.
We take this course so that no one should blame us about this generous gift that is being administered by us, for we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of man. (2 Corinthians 8:20-21 ESV)The ministry of Colonial Baptist Church is funded by the generous and sacrificial gifts of God's people. We are committed to honoring God's provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices and integrity in all of our dealings.

How We Use Your Gifts
When you give, you will designate how Colonial will use the funds. Contributions you make to Colonial are tax deductible for the calendar year in which we receive your gift.
The Ministry Fund is how we support all of the ongoing ministries of the church. This fund pays the staff, supports all of the ministry budgets, pays the mortgage and utilities, supports our global workers and is the primary means by which our ministry is supported. As you prayerfully consider your financial support to Lord's work at Colonial, this is where your regular giving goes. Support of the other funds would be giving that is above and beyond your regular giving as the Lord enables you to give more.
Debt Reduction Fund
The Debt Reduction Fund is an opportunity for you to accelerate the pace at which our debt is eliminated. While the base mortgage is paid from the Ministry Fund, all gifts to the Debt Reduction Fund go directly toward making additional debt payments.
Grace Promise Fund (Began April 1, 2017)
