Giving joyfully and sacrificially of our finances is part of our worship.
Grace Church believes that God is the rightful owner of all things (1 Chronicles 29:11), and we agree with James 1:17 that “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights.” Therefore, as believers in Christ, we do not strive for accrual of personal wealth or possessions. Instead, we strive to steward God’s resources respectfully and wisely, thereby modeling the joy and sacrifice of Jesus for our brothers, sisters, and world.
The ministry work of Grace Church is our effort to serve our Father in all things, and one of the primary ways we serve God is by cheerfully giving, “not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7). We call our members and regular attendees to give from hearts of humility and thankfulness, gladly sacrificing for the sake of the gospel because Jesus sacrificed for us.
With God’s help, we will be a church that honors God in our joyful, sacrificial, worshipful giving as we carry the gospel into our city, state, country, and world.
