We believe it is important to be conscious of why we contribute financially to the work of God. Here are the two big reasons:
- It is a matter of worship & priority. Simply put, we give because we believe that everything belongs to God, including the money we earn and have in our possession. Mankind has never had a problem spending money on that which we love, and we want our finances to willingly reflect our submission to Jesus. (Psalm 24:1).
- Obedience still matters. Jesus affirmed the practice of giving 10% from the firstfruits of your earnings (tithing) established in Old Testament times. When you give, you are obeying a basic Biblical principle, and partnering with God through the local Church to send out the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 9:6-15).
