First Baptist Church of Dover is supported by the faithful generosity of the congregation, who follow the Biblical model of cheerful giving. Offerings given to the church support the ongoing ministry expenses including programming, staffing, benevolence, and facilities. The church also supports other ministries, donating 26% of undesignated gifts given to various local, regional, and national ministries, including Choices Pregnancy Resource Clinic, Nailbenders, the Main Street Mission, the Ronnie Tullos Evangelistic Association, Cross & Shield Ministries, the Arkansas River Valley Baptist Association, and the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention.
"Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
- 2 Corinthians 9:7
