Here are a few answers to frequently asked questions regarding giving at Hope Church:
1. WHY SHOULD I GIVE?
Tithing was setup by God in the Old Testament as a giving 10% of your income to the tabernacle. Being under the New Covenant means that we are no longer saved by obeying the Old Testament Law, rather we are now given the power and grace to give from a heart of faith and thankfulness, not from obligation. We believe that tithing to your local church should springboard a lifestyle of generosity which should mark the life of every Christian.
2. WHAT DOES HOPE CHURCH DO WITH THE MONEY GIVEN?
At Hope Church, our financial goal is to use every cent in order to further the Gospel and expand the Kingdom of God. Some examples of how we do this include setting aside 10% of all money received to support global missions. We also support foreign missions and missionaries, prioritize giving to those in need through benevolence, and pay for the practical ministry at Hope Church (Sunday service costs). Finally, we use money received to support our pastoral and administrative staff as we are able.
3. A PRAYER FOR YOU
Our prayer for you is that you would make Jesus the treasure of your heart and continues to live for Him with your whole life. We pray that you would experience the promise He has given to us that “it is better to give than to receive.” May the Lord guide and direct you as you seek to honor Him with what you have been given.
