Biblical giving has
nothing to do with TV offers, special
prayer cloths or Caribbean cruises. Biblical giving is a privilege. It is about love of God and of our com-
munity. Biblical giving is the expression of that love.

We trust the Lord to lead you in giving. We do not pass an offering basket or prolong worship pressuring you for money. This is not what biblical giving is about, but rather, that each of us give what we have decided in our heart to give, "...not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." (I Corinthians 9:7) 

Supporting God's work does not require you to empty out your wallet or mortgage your home. Even small donations of a few dollars can go a long way to further the work of this ministry. The amount is not important. What's important is that we each do our part, as God prospers us, to make sure God's ministry has the resources required to serve the needs of our community.

“The question is not how much of my money I give to God, but rather how much of God’s money I keep for myself.”  R.G. LeTOURNEAU

We welcome and invite you to worship with us Sundays at 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM,
and Wednesdays at 7:00 PM.  CONTINUES BELOW

Beyond Our Power

Honoring God With Our Giving

The early church gave of their means the first day of every week ( I Corinthians 16:1). We have the honor and privilege of giving back to the Lord that which He gave to us. Each Christian is commanded to give "as he has been prospered." The word “steward” means "one who manages for another person." A Christian steward is like a manager of a local business who carries out the aims of the owner, maximizes profits, while dealing wisely with all the problems. Spontaneous giving occurs when the Holy Spirit leads one to give beyond the tithe on a regular weekly basis or to a particular person or project. It is sometimes a love offering. It is sometimes a need offering. II Corinthians 8:6-7: “Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also. (8:7) Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.”

Spiritual giving is committing to God what you do not have, “beyond your power.” II Corinthians 8:3, “For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves...” What's important is that we each do our part, as God prospers us, to make sure God's ministry has the resources it needs.

Offerings
An offering is a free-will supplemental gift to God. When we were under the ordinance of the Law, God required complex rituals involving animal sacrifice and purification rituals. Now, all God wants is our love and our faithfulness. we can express both by sharing ourselves with God. sharing our time, sharing our talent, and sharing our treasure. Giving is often one of the weakest areas of our Christian walk. We can prosper ourselves and our community by making regular and substantive offerings to God.

“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”  —1 Corinthians 9:7

Tithes
Tithing is the act of returning to God a portion of that which God has blessed us with. Tithing is an important ordinance intended to provide for the needs of God's work. It is every Christian's responsibility to tithe, to support their local churches and ministries and the work of the Lord. Tithing is our first duty and the church's first resource for its support and finance. This ministry store is not intended to replace our duty, under God, to support this ministry, as God has ordained:

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment , mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone."
—Matthew 23:23
