When you sign up to give online, you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “first fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). 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 faithfully given back to God (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).
You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip.
We utilize an encrypted secure website for our giving portal to ensure protection of your sensitive personal information and giving history.
You have the ability to quickly see your online giving history directly through our giving portal instead of having to contact our finance department for a personalized report.
The Bible teaches that everything we have comes from God and belongs to Him. Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” God is our provider. Therefore, we are mere stewards of what God has given to us. Tithing is giving back to God what is already His. Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
The word “tithe” means one tenth. So, when you tithe, you give one tenth or 10% of your earnings. Tithing (10%) is the starting point of giving. Offerings are gifts given above the tithe. God has blessed some people financially who are able to give substantially more than 10% and still live comfortably.
God’s plan is the local church. We work together as a church to reach those who need the saving message of the gospel. The money you give supports all we do, and without your financial support, the local church ministries could not be as effective. Malachi 3:10 says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” By partnering together, God’s work is done more effectively.
Gifts are used to fund God’s work through ministries within our church, local missions partnerships, overseas missionaries, church plants throughout the United States, and cooperative ministries within the Southern Baptist Convention.
Practically speaking, everyone can start a pattern of regular giving. Start now with regular systematic giving (e.g. weekly, bi-weekly or monthly). As the Lord blesses, you increase your giving until you reach the tithe and beyond. However, as a reminder, the Lord requires us to be faithful regardless of how much He has entrusted to us. Luke 16:10 says “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” It is when we are having financial struggles that we can’t afford not to tithe. God wants us to trust Him in everything, including our finances.
A copy of the church budget is available in the lobby at each campus.

An opportunity for giving is part of each Sunday morning worship service. During this time of worship, you may give with cash or by check (payable to Highview Baptist Church). If you prefer your gift to be in an envelope those are usually available in the church lobby. If you prefer the traditional tithing envelopes, with your name and address preprinted, you can receive a supply by mail once per quarter. If you would like to request preprinted envelopes or you need to discontinue your envelope service, please email us at email@example.com or call the church office at (502) 239-7711.
If you want to give on Sunday morning but you don’t have cash or a check, we have an iPad Kiosk Giving Station in the lobby. Log-in with your phone number, enter your gift and swipe a credit or debit card. It’s quick, simple and secure. If you only use this method occasionally, it becomes part of your giving history available for you to see online.
For all campuses, you can mail your gift by check (payable to Highview Baptist Church) to the following address:
Highview Baptist Church
7711 Fegenbush Lane
Louisville, KY 40228
Many banks offer their customers the ability to have funds automatically drafted from an account in order to be mailed to a recipient (such as a church) on a recurring basis. Please contact your personal bank if you wish to pursue this option to set up Highview Baptist Church as a new payee.
Appreciated marketable securities such as stocks, mutual funds, or bonds are a great way to maximize your giving because you receive an immediate income tax deduction for the full market value of your securities, if they have been held for at least one full year.
How to Give:
• A gift of stock, mutual funds or bonds are usually transferred electronically from the donor’s broker to the church’s broker.
• Often your broker will have a form you use to give them instructions on what securities you desire to transfer. Call you broker for the required form.
• Your broker will also need the instructions for how to send your securities electronically to Highview’s broker. To receive these electronic transfer instructions please email our church Operations Pastor, Chip Evans, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Once you initiate a stock transfer to Highview’s broker please let Chip Evans know so that we can send you the appropriate income tax receipt for the gift. The income tax receipt (which is a letter from Highview) is your official tax receipt. Non-cash gifts in the form of securities does not appear on your annual contribution statement or on the giving history available online.
• If you have any questions, please contact Chip Evans by email or by calling the church office at (502) 239-7711.
In addition to stocks or bonds, you can donate real estate and business interests before the sale and reduce taxes and send more to charities. You can donate trusts, retirement accounts and cars. If you’d like to discuss the possibility of giving any type of non-cash gift please email or call our Operations Pastor, Chip Evans, at (502) 239-7711 or email@example.com.
We are using the term “Planned Giving” to describe a charitable donation made at death as part of the donor’s overall financial or estate planning. For example, upon the death of a donor, a charity might receive a percentage of your estate value or be the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
We are using the term “Giving Fund” to describe what’s known as a donor-advised fund. A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about. You can invest most any type of asset into a donor-advised fund and you are usually eligible to take an immediate tax deduction but then you can distribute the funds to IRS-qualified charities over a timeline you prefer (even over many years if you prefer).
If you have questions or you’d like help with planned giving or other giving options like a donor-advised fund please email or call our Operations Pastor, Chip Evans, at (502) 239-7711 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
