GIVING

supporting the mission of jesus

WHY DO WE GIVE?

Every believer in Christ has the responsibility to support their local church. Jesus emphasized the importance of giving over and over. In fact He spoke of money more than heaven and hell because money is often a good barometer of what is important in someone’s life. Everything we have is from Him. Because of the goodness and grace that Jesus has shown His followers, it only makes sense that His followers would respond in sacrificing time, talents, and treasures. Christians are called to give to the local church and live generously with those around them; it is out of obedience to Jesus and for His glory that we seek to be generous in all areas of life.

Please keep in mind—we never ask guests or those who do not call themselves Christians to give financially, although you are welcome to contribute.
"The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
