At Antioch Community Church: Orlando, we desire to worship God not only with our words and songs but also with our financial resources. The Bible teaches us that the ‘earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it’ (Psalm 24:1). Since everything belongs to God, we are a church that generously gives our financial resources to support what God is doing in our city and in the nations of the world.
As a church we are committed to running a debt-free organization. We are committed to financial sacrifice and to radical generosity.
Why is using my checking account better for Antioch?
When you allow your donation to be withdrawn directly from your checking account, the church is charged a transaction fee of 25 cents. When you use your debit or credit card, the church is charged a 45 cent transaction fee, plus an additional 2.75% on the donation amount. For every $1,000 given, this is an extra $28 that the church never receives. The savings really do add up!
Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS. According to IRS guidelines, donations remain under the jurisdiction and control of Antioch. Donations are solicited with the understanding that Antioch has complete discretion and control over all donated funds. In practice, Antioch implements donor instructions whenever possible. In case a gift cannot be used as indicated by the donor, it will be applied to other important functions of Antioch.
