As a church, we view every aspect of our life as part of our expression of love and gratitude to God. Our finances are part of this, since God blesses us financially and with the ability to earn in order that we support his work to help people grow spiritually, feed the poor, and run the operations of our ministry. Again, we believe that giving to the ministry is not a burden we bear or force onto others, but it is a privilege and calling for those who follow the self-giving of Jesus (2 Corinthians 8:9), and all our members participate in this. For any questions or concerns about our view of giving and how we steward ("use" rather than "own") the church's money, feel free to ask any of our leaders.
