Church & Religious Organization Insurance in California
The Bible defines the church as the body or gathering of believing Christians – it’s definitely more than a building. It's a community.
The church is responsible for providing a safe and secure sanctuary for people to worship and learn the Word of God. To deliver on its spiritual duties, the church needs to spend sufficient time and effort on some of its earthly, material responsibilities. Church insurance policies do just that; they protect the community both physically and financially in times of need.
For nearly 20 years, Carriage Trade’s commitment to Christian churches has included helping you manage costs, increase and improve loss prevention, and ensure that we get you the best bang for your buck.
What types of church insurance are available?
Like other kinds of insurance, there are a variety of options to choose from in regards to church insurance. Most plans include property and liability coverage. Though the two insurance policies are often similar in how they address fire, hail, and other non-ministry-specific losses, they can vary greatly in other aspects that are unique to your mission. To further increase the scope of your policy’s coverage, it would be beneficial to add commercial auto insurance and workers compensation to your policy.
Carriage Trade Insurance Agency tailors your insurance to protect your Christian ministry's unique property, people, and programs.
