The Doctrine of Stewardship

We believe that the believer’s resources belong to God; that God has entrusted these temporal benefits to the believer for proper stewardship; that He blesses the faithful steward. We are encouraged by the scriptures to abound in the grace of giving. We believe that scriptural principles encourage the tithe as the starting point for giving, and that offerings in excess of the tithe are in keeping with New Testament teachings. We are instructed to give as God has prospered us. Stewardship is a matter of the heart, for God loveth a cheerful giver. His blessing is on sacrificial giving. We believe the Lord is honoured by consistent giving to His work through His church. This is a means of worship.
