Why Giving to a Church is
the Right Thing To Do.
The purpose of the church is to worship God (Luke 4:8; John 4:8; John 4:23), study His Word (2 Timothy 2:15; I Cor. 4:6), pray (Acts 2:42), love one another (John 13:35; Phil. 1:1-4), help each other (Gal. 6:2), partake of baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Luke 22:19-20), to learn how to live as godly people (Titus 2:11-12), to be equipped to evangelize the world (Eph. 4:12; Matt. 28:18-20), and to be the hub of the community
Giving undergirds all services of the ministry. It is said that to give to the church means another person added to the kingdom. The burden of the church is to reach out for Christ, preach into Christ, and teach in Christ. The church is, therefore, responsible in being a community voice, a community outreach, and a community center of worship, a driving force in moral awareness that can keep streets and homes safe in the saving of souls. The impact of giving, thus keeps a church vibrant in assuring its ministries are doing what they are supposed to do, and to serve as a refuge center for the many souls who are seeking rest from the weariness of life.
