Giving at Believers Church
Every single dollar stewarded at Believers Church is part of the “missions budget,” strategically deployed to advance God’s mission here and around the world. We do still “pass the plate” but we encourage you to give how/where God is leading you. That’s not because there isn’t great need. In fact, we have more opportunities than resources at any given time. Rather, we believe this is the best way to facilitate joyful giving (2 Corinthians 9:7, Matthew 6:4). Let us all prayerfully consider how we might continue to invest in this mission with our hearts and God’s possessions.
What We Believe About Giving
"Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7 We believe the giving of our firstfruits is an act of worship, a way that honors God Proverbs 3:9 while also living mindfully that ALL we own, not just what we give is the Lord's Psalm 24:1. God is a giver of eternal gifts John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 2:12 and temporal Deuteronomy 8:17-18, James 1:17 and when a follower of Christ freely and joyfully gives away their increase, whether it be money, possessions, time, or talents, they are imitating God. We are excited about your desire to give, not only because of how your gift will allow us to continue to be about our mission of being and making disciples, but also because of what your gift prayerfully communicates to the world about your heart and relationship with God 2 Corinthians 9:12-15 and how investing wisely benefits you Acts 20:35, Luke 12:33.
