During services on Sunday morning.

Why we give

God is generous and so he calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

how to give


The Old Testament required a certain percentage of income to be given. The New Testament requires not a percentage, but an attitude of generosity. We are to give all that God’s prosperity permits (1 Corinthians 16:3). The more we prosper, the more we are to give (Luke 12:48).


God looks not only at what we give, but at how we handle all the possessions consigned to us (Mark 12:41-44; 2 Corinthians 8:3).


We are to plan the amount we give, not give what is left over (Malachi 3:8-9; 1 Corinthians 16:2). Our offering is to be set aside; implying that the amount should be given first. This is an Old Testament principle: we give to God first. Examples: first fruits (Proverbs 3:9-10); Elijah and the widow of Zarephath (1 Kings 7:13).
