We are very excited to let you know that FBS is transitioning to Realm Giving for our online giving platform. You can begin giving one-time gifts on the new system today. To save your information for quick access and view your giving records, create or login to your account here.
If you have previously set up recurring gifts online, you can still manage those on the old giving system here. Be watching for additional information soon about switching your recurring giving over to the new system.
Other Giving Options
If you are over age 70 ½ and have to take a Required Distribution from your IRA, talk to your tax advisor about how you can send that directly to the church and save on taxes.
Gifts of Stock
If you would like to give stock, please call our Business Office at 864-699-4225 for more information on how to have it transferred directly to the church.

First Baptist Spartanburg offers online giving as a convenience for those who prefer this method. This is not intended to facilitate those giving to incur debt. FBS practices and encourages sound Biblical money management principles and we do not recommend credit cards for online giving.
Those who use the online giving can customize their giving options designating where their gifts go (general budget, missions, Building Fund, etc.) and the frequency in which they give. All your gifts (online, check, etc) can now be tracked on your account by logging in and viewing your individual history.. Online giving is secure and may also be set up using an automatic bank draft from your bank account or through your personal bankcard.
You are still free to give through our weekly Sunday service, by setting up an e-check or EFT through your bank, or by mailing your check to 250 East Main St. Spartanburg, SC 29306. If you would like to make a stock gift or other gift in kind please contact the business office at 864-699-4225. Some who give online write “giving online” on their envelope and place it in the offering plate on Sunday as a part of their worship. We acknowledge that giving is a personal matter and God directs each of us to give in various ways.
Why Give Online?
Automate the Important
You can set your budget and know God’s gift will go automatically to Him on your designated date. Online giving makes it more difficult for other financial responsibilities to let you compromise your faith promise to God.
As a testimony to your faithfulness
We all try to remember to bring our offering in our designated envelopes every Sunday. But often we put them in the wrong Bible or purse and forget them. Or when you go on vacation, do you give in advance or just skip the month? Online giving speaks to our faithfulness in giving.
You help our church
Managing the church budget is not an easy task. Through giving online, you can assure the base of regular financial support for the church.
You are a witness to other believers
As you assure that your monetary gift to FBS is regular and on time, you will be an example for others to follow and can give testimony to the blessing of faithful giving.
Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all our crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10
