WHY WE GIVE
The Bible says that God gave his only Son, Jesus, so that we would be saved. But not only did God save us, he lavishes on us uncountable blessings and an eternal inheritance we can’t comprehend. God’s generosity towards us compels us to be generous in return.
WE GIVE TO JESUS
Everything we have belongs to God. Therefore, we do not really decide how much of our wealth to give, as much as we decide how much of God’s wealth we want to give back to Him. In 1 Chronicles 29:14, David says “But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able thus to offer willingly? For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you.” We believe we are responsible to faithfully give and are to be extravagantly generous.
WE GIVE THROUGH THE CHURCH
Jesus is the head of the church, his body. The local church is the hands and feet of Jesus to a specific local community. The primary way that we give to Jesus is through His church! We believe that believers should be plugged into a local family of believers where they are fed with the Word, encouraged, and held accountable. The ministries of the church are supported by the partnering believers that make up this local family.
