WHY DO WE GIVE?
“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it…” —Psalm 24:1
We believe that we are stewards of God’s resources because He is the owner of all that we have. His Word tells us that giving is an act of worship and that giving should be done with a spirit of thanksgiving!
At Connection International, we have several ways that you can give to God’s work. You can give by cash or check on Sundays, you can mail a check to our offices, you can also give online. We understand that people can get busy throughout the week, so we wanted to offer a simple solution for giving to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
As Christ Followers, we believe that we are to follow God’s call (both Old and New Testament) for generosity. “Tithe” means “tenth” or 10 percent. We tithe because:
1. Giving of our firsts involves faith–the essential ingredient to bring God pleasure, and
2. It releases the rest of our resources to receive God’s blessing.
In Malachi 3:8-10 God speaks to His people, “Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask, ‘How do we rob you?’ In tithes and offerings …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.”
Connection International believes that we are stewards of what God has given us. Therefore, we see tithing as giving back to God, what He has already given to us because giving our first 10% in faith ... frees up the 90% to go further than the 100%. Giving beyond this is a further response to our love for God. This type of sacrificial giving is over and above and should also be done with cheerfulness.
