Your Generosity Fuels the Mission of Jesus!

We exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ. We want to see people of every generation join Jesus on mission as fully surrendered disciple makers. Your faithful generosity fuels the mission of Jesus Christ in our community, within the United States, and around the world.
For example, in the last year your gifts:

Why We Give

We can be generous because God is generous to us.

Generosity is a gift to us from the first and most generous giver, God. From the very beginning, God has displayed his unparalleled generosity in His sovereign plan of creation and redemption. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) Let that truth resonate in your heart! Our generous God spared nothing, not even His only begotten Son, so that we could be radically saved from our sins and live forever in heaven with Him!
The Bible tells us, “This is how we have come to know love: He laid down his life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.” (1 John 3:16) Because God has been extraordinarily generous to us by giving us His Son, we are empowered to be extraordinarily generous toward others.

We can be generous because we can’t out give God.

Jesus tells us that God gives us financial means so that we can share what we have been given with others in need, not out of a sense of guilt or obligation but cheerfully and willingly. The truth is, we can’t receive heavenly joy from Jesus when our fists are clinched trying to hold on to what He has given us to invest in His mission.
The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that God is more important to us than material things. God says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.” (Malachi 3:10)
And in 2 Corinthians 9:6-8, the Bible says, “he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.” 
Clearly, the Bible shows us God’s promise that His blessing flows back into the space where gospel-centered generosity was poured out. You can trust the promises of God because God’s promises never fail! You simply can’t out give God.

We can be generous because we have been changed by the gospel.

In Matthew 6:19-21, Jesus said to His followers, “Don’t store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don’t break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” When Jesus saves you, He gives you a brand new heart. A heart that loves what Jesus loves, and Jesus loves the church. The church is God’s Plan A to take the Gospel to the entire world (Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8). And there is no Plan B. There is no organization in the world with more potential to change the world with the good news of Jesus Christ than the local church!
When Jesus gives you a brand new heart, not only do you begin to love what Jesus loves, you also begin to love how Jesus loves. The Bible says, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 12:45) So, as God gives you the capacity to share, share generously. As God gives you the capacity to serve, serve generously. As God gives you the capacity to go, go generously. As God gives you the capacity to give, give generously. You are new in Jesus Christ. You are a child of the King of all Creation to whom everything in the heavens and on earth belongs (1 Chronicles 29:11). Let the Holy Spirit unleash God’s generosity through you.
