Preparing for the Future

http://www.fbcn.org/uploads/PastorImage.jpgThank you for visiting the First Baptist Church Naples stewardship and estate planning website.  We have prepared this site to enable you and your family to be wise stewards of the resources He has entrusted to you. 

Statistics indicate that a staggering 70% of Americans do not have a current will.  There are negative ramifications of not planning for the future, particularly on children, surviving spouses, as well as dealing with tax and fee issues.  Some reasons for not planning are: fear of dying, procrastination, confusion about the estate planning process, the cost of creating a will, and more.  

You may use our Estate Plan Organizer and walk through a tutorial of data gathering.  Once you complete the data gathering process, you can print the data at home or request help.  The Estate Plan Organizer does not ask for social security numbers or bank account information.  Please be assured that all your information is kept confidential and is totally secure.

Upon submitting your entry at the end of the tutorial, one of our partners with PhilanthroCorp (a Christ-centered estate planning firm) will contact you.  PhilanthroCorp has a wonderful reputation nationwide and has been approved by our church leadership.

We trust that you will find this “layman friendly” site to be the answer to your prayers in preparing for the future.  The Word tells us that “when the wise are instructed, they receive knowledge” (Proverbs 21:11).

Grace and peace,
