Thank you for your gift and laying up treasure in heaven (Matthew 6:20).
We believe generosity is an important aspect of Christian discipleship and is to be encouraged and developed in every aspect of life. One aspect of generosity pertains to our relationship with the money in our possession. We regard financial giving to be a very practical and natural expression of our devotion to Christ due to three considerations:
Giving is an Act of Worship
We understand that all of life is to be lived to the glory of God. We are to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). The relative importance of something to us can be seen in how much we invest into it our time, energy, and resources (Matthew 6:19-21). It is easy for us to inadvertently rely upon money or other tangible goods, rather than God, to solve the problems we face. In short, it is easy for money to become an idol to us. The call to give as an act of worship is an invitation to tangibly express trust in God for Him to be and do all that we need (1 Timothy 6:17), even as we express gratitude for all that God has given to us (1 Chronicles 29:14). Christian worship is to be characterized by joy (Psalm 5:11); so, too, should our giving (2 Corinthians 9:7).
Giving is a Means of Blessing Others
We recognize that God is the supreme Giver. His goodness and generosity are demonstrated preeminently in the gift of His Son (John 3:16), but also in His giving us all things
(Romans 8:32, James 1:17). When we give, we are following the pattern set by God. God wants us to use the resources with which He has entrusted us to be a blessing to others (1 John 3:17, 2 Corinthians 8:14).
Giving is Partnership in the Gospel
We are serious about the gospel. We are zealous to see the good news of the kingdom spread. To that end, a portion of our budget is dedicated to missions outside our church while we carefully craft and manage our funds in order to maximize ministry in and among our congregation. We trust God to multiply exponentially our contributions to bring about great effect for kingdom purposes
(2 Corinthians 9:10). When we give, we don’t just enable ministry, we actually become partners in ministry (Philippians. 4:15).
