Giving Enables Remarkable Ministry

Be involved in what God is doing.

God is the source of all blessings; all that we have and are, we owe to Him. Therefore, we are under obligation to serve Him with our time, talents, and material possessions; and should recognize all these as entrusted to us to use for the glory of God and for helping others.

Every time you give to the primary budget fund of First Baptist Cleveland, you enable remarkable ministry to people of every age, worship experiences in every venue, hundreds of Groups and classes, events focused on spiritual growth, and you empower streaming, broadcasts, digital resources, local non-profit partnerships and global missionary efforts.

In obedience to God, contribute to His work cheerfully, regularly, systematically, proportionately, and generously for the advancement of the Redeemer’s cause on Earth. 


Generations is a comprehensive plan that began in 2008 to relocate and expand the facilities and ministries of the church campus to better develop Kingdom-minded believers and make disciples that make disciples.

Announced November 10, 2019, Phase 2 of Generations will more than double available space and will benefit every generation from newborns to senior adults.
