1. Do I need to register and create an account to give online?

You can give without registering with an account, but we encourage you to register to access giving history and any scheduled recurring payments.

9. What does the Bible say about giving?

The Bible has thousands of verses on giving but in summary, giving is a key element of spiritual formation and growth requiring two things of us: Faith & Faithfulness. 

Faith: Giving is an active expression of our faith. Giving demonstrates that God is our Provider and shows our confidence in His ability to supply our every need. Further, it’s an act of gratitude and dependence upon Him.

"'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,' says the Lord Almighty, 'and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.'" Malachi 3:10

As we listen to God's voice and earnestly seek His will for our lives, His plan for giving will become obvious to each of us. In response, we can eagerly give, knowing that it pleases Him.

Through our gifts, we prove faithful in the stewardship of all God has provided us, while He blesses us beyond what we can possibly imagine. 

Faithfulness: Giving requires the highest standard of personal integrity and discipline. It is not a casual or when we happen to remember thing. In 2 Corinthians 8-9 the Bible teaches we are to give willingly, generously, and cheerfully. Our pattern should reflect a regular and systematic plan.
