Our Financial Policy
Four Bible principles shape our use of the money entrusted to our church:
God’s people financing the spread of God’s word to God’s glory.
We do not seek financial support from non-church, non-Christian people. We do not wish to confuse our message or create barriers for them. We wish to give people the opportunity free of charge to hear the gospel of God’s free grace. We wish to avoid the impression many have that the church is “after their money”.
Our church’s budget & ministries help to meet the physical and emotional needs of our members & the needy of our community. But Jesus said “man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God”. So we give the spiritual feeding of people with the Word of God top priority in the way we spend our church budget.
Invest For the Future
We have set a budget for growing people & ministries, believing that if we are faithful and strategic in our ministries then God will bless it by saving people and growing His family, enabling us to give & minister more! Romans 1:16
Thankful, Generous, Anonymous Giving
Some churches specify how much members should give. Some say 5%, 10 %, 20%! We do not. We urge members to give generously from grateful hearts, so that others may know Christ & grow in Him. Instead of “user pays”, we are Churches in Partnership deciding together where are the best opportunities to invest our money, time & personnel for the building of Jesus’ family. (Matthew 16:18).
