The Bible teaches that everything we have comes from God and we should be open to using it as he directs (Deuteronomy 10:14). When we give, it is way of acknowledging God’s ownership and so it becomes an act of worship.

We are encouraged to support those in our church in positions of responsibility (1 Timothy 5:17). It takes money to provide the building, staff and programmes that the church is providing to spiritually nurture you. It takes money to extend the kingdom of God, both locally and overseas. We are encouraged to remember the poor (Proverbs 14:31), so some of your giving to the church helps goes to overseas and supporting local mission. 

We encourage each believer to seek to hear from God regarding their giving. It is important to remember we all one day will be accountable to God for the use of the money God has given us (Matthew 25:14-30).
