WHY WE GIVE
“It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
Our Time: Jesus spent His time on earth serving (Mark 10:45). Consequently, we are encouraged to do the same. Therefore, we are to spend a portion of our time in service and prayer for each other, showing hospitality, and sharing the love and hope of Jesus Christ to the dying world.
Our Talent: The Body of Christ (God’s Church) consists of many parts known as “gifts” or “talents”. When used according to the Will of God, they create a symphony of service to the Lord (I Corinthians 12). It is God who distributes the gifts and His church uses those gifts to glorify Him (I Peter 4:10).
Our Tithe: We recognize that it is the Lord that gives us the power to gain wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18). Therefore, giving at least 10% of our income is a biblical standard that we use to show appreciation for what God has given us. When we withhold that which belongs to God, we are considered robbers and therefore under a curse. However, when followed, God promises a bounty of continued blessings that overflow in our lives (Malachi 3:6-12).
