Financial Stewardship

We believe giving to Christ’s church is an act of worship, and that both our attitude toward giving and practice of giving indicates our level of spiritual maturity and commitment to Christ’s mission (Matthew 6:19-21). Faithful giving also makes us more generous overall, freeing us from the bonds of materialism, allowing us to better show Christ’s love to a watching world, and providing a platform for further spiritual growth (2 Corinthians 9:6-8).

One of our first goals in handling finances is to be good and faithful stewards of all gifts entrusted to us. We know that all we have is God’s (1 Chronicles 29:11-12), and that we are only temporary stewards of the money that is given to us. In all our dealings we maintain a sense of humility and gratitude for the material blessings God has provided through sacrificial giving and a desire to be an example of Christian integrity. Our obligation, therefore, is to spend that money prayerfully, frugally, and wisely.
