Giving is about so much more than money.
Every good and perfect gift comes from God. Every breath we take, every bite we eat, every dollar we earn.
This world is God's, so everything we have is truly His.
But it doesn't stop there. God has given those who have trusted in Christ alone for salvation unique gifts which have been designed for service to His Church. As a result, Scripture charges Christ-followers to give back to God out of that which He has given freely to us. We believe that the next step in the discipleship process should be to serve Jesus Christ's Church.
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. - Romans 12:3-8
