WHY WE GIVE
We believe the Bible makes it clear that generous giving is an important part of the Christian life. As God has so generously blessed us, 'for God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life' - John 3:16. Our desire is to emulate His generosity.
2 Corinthians 8:7 'But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving.'
'Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” ' Luke 6:38
