Who We Are

First Baptist Church of Miami, Oklahoma is a gathering of people who believe that we exist to express the love of Jesus Christ to the community of Miami and the surrounding area. We are made up of many different ages, shapes, sizes, and backgrounds, but our mission is the same—helping you to be everything that God wants you to be for His purposes! We don't exist for ourselves.

OUR VALUES

Doctrinally and denominationally, First Baptist Miami is a Southern Baptist Church. For the full explanation of our doctrinal statements, click here.

We value God's Word.

It is the sole source of understanding God and having genuine relationship with Him. No experience, no program, and no person can inform our knowledge of God outside of submission to the Bible.

 

We value Community.

Everyone has a role and a purpose in the function of the church. No single person can do everything in the church. No single group of people can do everything in the church. Only together, through humble submission to Christ and to one another, can we accomplish anything valuable.

 

We value Worship.

While worship does take place on Sunday mornings with other believers, genuine worship takes place in our obedience to the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. When we do what Jesus did, our worship takes place in our homes, in our workplaces, in our hangouts, in our social clubs, and in our local church gatherings.

 

We value Mission.

Our mission is to take the life-saving, life-giving Gospel of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ into a broken world so that all might be saved, beginning with Miami and ending at the furthest reaches of the earth.

GIVING

We want to make giving more accessible and more simple. The offering plate continues to be passed week after week during Sunday morning worship, but for those who desire to give by a different method, we want to meet you halfway.

We have made electronic giving an option for giving offerings, tithes, and donations. We hope that you find these options helpful and simple as we strive to serve you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Why do I have to pay fees to give my tithe/offering/donation?

A: We have partnered with a third party to enable us to make online giving a possibility. The fees associated with either giving options goes directly to them. First Baptist Church incurs the cost of each transaction. If you desire to avoid all fees, cash and check are still accepted. If you prefer to pay online, we recommend the automatic draft option as it has much lower fees. 

Q: How much of my giving is reported in order to deduct for my charitable contributions for tax purposes?

A: Because we have to pay fees in order to make this option available, only the amount of the contribution that goes to the church will be counted as charitable contributions. Example: Sam gives $10,000 to FBC for a year, using his debit card to give every month. At the end of the fiscal year, his contribution comes out to only $9,750.80: $10,000 - $245 (total debit card service fees at 2.45%) - $4.20 (12 monthly transaction fees at $0.35). There is an option to pay the additional 2.45% in order to have your contribution shown as the amount you want to give. In Sam's case, he would end up giving $10,249.20 in order for his charitable contributions to equal $10,000. 

Q: Why can't I use my credit card?

A: 1) In Scripture, the idea of giving always comes from what the giver actually has. The widow who gave her mite did not defer her extravagant gift (although it was less than a penny's value) but rather gave generously even out of her poverty. Using a credit card doesn't hurt, and therefore, it's not a sacrificial gift. 2) We desire that everyone be unbound by any master other than Jesus Christ. With credit card debt being so commonplace, we don't want to create a stumbling block or give any opportunity for enslavement. If you can only give with a credit card, then seek God for another way to give. 

Q: Do I have to give online or can I still write a check or give cash?

A: We will always receive checks and cash as offerings, tithes, and donations. You do not have to give online unless you want to. This is simply our effort to provide an additional, technologically relevant option for givers to give their tithes, offerings, and donations.
