WHY DO WE GIVE
TO A LOCAL CHURCH
As Christians, we come to realize and understand that God has given us everything we have. As followers of Christ we have been shown that we have a responsibility to manage all of our resources with faithfulness and generosity and to support our local church so it may continue providing God’s message.
Throughout Scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. His Word tells us that giving is an act of worship that should be done with a spirit of thanksgiving.
"Honor the LORD with your possessions, And with the first fruits of all you increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.” Proverbs 3:9-10, NKJV
"Give to others, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands - more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to others is the way God will give to you." Luke 6:38, ERV
