Click below to access an easy and secure giving experience. It is our joy to make it simple to partner with us in our mission and vision.
We believe that giving is not something that we have to do - it's something that we get to do. God invites us to partner with Him in changing our city and our world by trusting Him with our time, talent, and treasure.
Giving back a portion of your income to God is all about having a grateful heart. Grateful in the sense that you know that you are one of God's children...that you have first given God your life by trusting in Jesus as your personal Savior and thus established a relationship with Him that will last through eternity. This is what God wants first from us, our lives submitted to Him. It is also understanding and accepting that Jesus has paid the price and penalty for our sin and provided a way for us to have relationship with God our Heavenly Father.
Once we understand our new relationship with the Lord, the desires of our heart cause us to want to honor the Lord with an offering as an act of gratitude for what He has done for us. That gratitude is expressed by giving of our time, talent, and treasure to further the Lord's work here on earth.

additional thoughts on giving
Sacrificial giving was never demonstrated more fully than when God "...gave His one and only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16) God is a giver! There is great joy in giving and God wants us to be cheerful givers.
Have you ever thought about the fact that even the things in your life you have earned by working came to you as a result of the gift of time, strength, health, skills and intelligence given to you by God. He gave you everything you have in one way or another. Nothing you have is really yours to treat as your own. God owns it all--you are simply His manager of those gifts as long as you live on this earth.
Give God the first portion of your income to show that He has first place in your life and that you know He is the Source of all you have. When you are obedient to Him in this area of your life, you can conquer greed and properly manage His resources. God not only has given you the responsibility to care for them, but He will hold you accountable for how you manage them. Whenever you take an owner's attitude toward money, time, and possessions, instead of a steward's attitude, problems and unhappiness are sure to follow. You can either be a good steward or a bad steward; you can either master the resources God has given you or allow them to master you.
