The foundation and essence of the Christian life is to follow Jesus with all that we are and hold nothing back. To be a disciple means that my financial life will be inseparably connected to my worship. To be a lover of God is to be a giver; to be filled with the Spirit is to be filled with the very essence of our generous God. When we give God our lives it also includes our treasure (our time, talent and money). According to Jesus, the places and people we give our treasure to are the keepers of our heart and objects of our affection.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.— Matthew 6:21
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do, "says the LORD of Heaven's Armies, "I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won't have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!
— Malachi 3:10
We live in a world of modern conveniences, and credit cards can be useful tools if used correctly. Please use credit cards carefully and never give to the point of debt. We would never encourage behavior that would result in consumer debt. If you are struggling with consumer debt, please speak with the pastor.
