In addition to sharing the same ultimate goal as churches — to advance God's Kingdom — BCLC also distinguishes itself in the loan products it offers:
- BCLC does not charge any origination fees at loan closing.
- There are no prepayment penalties. Our churches are free to pay down or pay off their loans as quickly as they would like.
