We believe in honoring God with everything that we are and everything that we have. That ultimately, everything was given to us by God, for God. Setting aside a portion of our income to give to our local church makes a statement to God, the church and the people around us about the place God holds in our heart and our belonging to that body of believers. (Matthew 6:21)
We believe that all that we have was also given to us to accomplish something. That when we gave our lives to Christ we became responsible for the spread of the gospel on the earth. So we give on purpose as an obedient act of worship and for a purpose to see more people come to know Jesus.
The Old Testament set the standard at 10% or tithe (Malachi 3:10) and was affirmed by Jesus in the New Testament (Matthew 23:23). The New Testament sets the standard at generosity (1 Timothy 6:18). So we encourage people to do their best to start at 10% and also aim for relative generosity. We encourage you to pray about it, and ask God what He would have you give (James 1:5).
Part of our generous giving is expressed through Kingdom Builders. This is an intentional giving strategy to see people in our local community and around the world come to know more about Jesus.
We give intentionally, systematically and cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7). That means that we pray about it and decide in advance how much we are going to set aside. Then, we plan our finances accordingly and give it not because anyone made us or because we are trying to earn grace, but in response to that grace we were given as an act of worship.
You can give during service or use our online giving page to tithe or contribute to Kingdom Builders.
Online Recurring Giving
One of the benefits to online giving is that you can set up your gift as a recurring one, meaning that each month the same amount will be given automatically, even if you’re out of town.
