Financial Strength

Partners In Ministry

You want the financial strength and stability of a long-established bank. But you also want a partner in ministry that will believe in your church, care about more than the bottom line, and help bring your vision to life. In BCLC, you get all of the above.

Maybe you’re a new church plant. Maybe you’ve been ministering for years. Wherever you are on the journey, we want to be part of God’s plan for your church. Here are a few unique reasons why you should consider us:

Our Reach

States We Serve

BCLC was founded in 1952 with the purpose of serving Texas Baptist churches. Over the next 50 years, BCLC was able to help many churches within Texas borders. But beginning in 2013, God put it on the heart of our leaders to help churches outside of the state. In 2014, BCLC officially expanded to all states in the Southeast region. God opened another door for BCLC to expand again in 2017, and now BCLC serves Baptist and like-minded churches in over 30 states.
