How to Give

"Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9 vs 7.

How EIC receives its financial support

EIC is affiliated with the International Baptist Convention for English-speaking churches and with the Fédération des Eglises Evangéliques Baptistes de France. However, EIC receives no direct funding from these organizations.

EIC is funded entirely from voluntary donations from those who attend the church and from other friends.

    How to give to EIC

1.
Contribute cash in the offering plate

We prefer to receive Euros only, but other currencies will be accepted. Please note that we are unable to provide you a statement for tax declaration purposes for cash received in the offering plate and cash in envelopes received in the offering plate.

2.
Pay by cheque in Euros

This easily enables us to record your contribution. We can then provide you with an annual giving statement for your tax declaration.
Make cheques payable to “Emmanuel International Church” or “EIC"

3.
By credit card directly into EIC's bank account

Make a secure on-line offering or donation to EIC with your bank card: all transactions go through Credit Mutuel’s secured server. For French tax payers, the bank will provide a giving statement for your annual tax declaration.

6.
Set up an automatic check draft from your US account

This is also done through International Baptist Church Ministries. The preferred way is that you set up an automatic check payment, and not a wire transfer, to IBCM. This is easy to accomplish on your $US account. Be sure to designate it for “EIC Paris offering”. The address for IBCM is: IBCM Inc, PO Box 833276, Richardson, TX 75083-3276
