We believe that giving is powerful. Giving to the church of Jesus Christ is not paying a bill but rather sowing a seed. When you pay a bill, the money leaves your life. When you plant a seed, the money leaves your hand but it does not leave your life. It comes back as a harvest. It postpones present gratification for future growth. We believe that true giving should be communion between you and God.
"The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written, “He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.” He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God." - 2 Corinthians 9:6-11
