Church Loans

Types of Church Loans Offered

Church Growth Investment Fund offers construction and permanent loans to churches and associations affiliated with the Florida Baptist Foundation and the Southern Baptist Convention. We make loans for purchasing property, constructing new facilities, refinancing existing debt and/or renovating existing facilities. We believe each ministry is unique and tailor a loan to the unique needs of each borrower.

We can also assist a local church in the evaluation of current and future facility needs based upon the church's unique situation. We understand the needs of local churches and exist for you. We believe we can help you avoid many problems and pitfalls of purchasing a new or existing church site or constructing a new facility. We know what to look out for and want to help your church avoid potentially expensive problems. We want to partner with you in helping you reach your community for Christ.
