The Baptist Foundation of California exists to serve Baptists by raising, managing, and distributing financial resources for Kingdom causes.  Churches and ministries place funds with the Foundation in our Fixed Income Funds and receive competitive interest rates.  Through Church First Financial, the Foundation’s lending division, the majority of these funds are loaned to other churches and ministries to help them accomplish their purposes.

Commitment and Expertise

For more than 50 years, our understanding of churches, institutions, and various Christian ministries and associations has provided a lending approach that reflects a solid commitment to their mission. We work with them to design strategic lending solutions and provide expertise to effectively navigate sometimes challenging construction management issues. Our partnership enables them to confidently pursue His vision in building a solid legacy for reaching future generations.
