Loan Association Benefits
The Baptist Missionary Loan Association cooperates with BMA churches of Texas to offer the following services:
If you have a mortgage and have been paying on it for several years, the rate may be higher than current rates and it is possible we can offer a lower rate. Or, your mortgage may have a “balloon” maturity where the entire loan comes due and the bank may not choose to renew it on the same terms. Banks are often bought up by a national chain, or have management changes that are not sensitive to making church loans. We can help you with a “full payout” loan and you do not have to worry about such changes. READ MORE
