WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO GIVE YOUR OFFERINGS?

We don't usually pass a plate to take offerings. In the past, we heard so much negative feedback about a church always talks and wants to take money.  We don't want the money issue to become a hinder for many unchurched to hear about the love of God through Jesus Christ, so we decided to go back to the Biblical way by setting up a box of offerings for our members and guests who would like to participate in giving offerings to God and to support the ministries.


Since we launched this Biblical practice years ago, we have not heard any criticism about the way we receiving our offerings.  However, we do believe in lifestyle of giving offerings as part of our worship service to the Lord.  From time to time we do teach our members about the essential of giving tithes (ten percent of income) and offerings (whatever beyond tithe) to God. It's a way of life as a fully committed follower of Christ. (see Proverbs 3:9; Malachi 3:10-12).


We believe that every believer is able to give regardless the amount of their income. The apostle Paul reminds us about the generosity of the Macedonian churches,"...they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, ...see that you also excel in this grace of giving...For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have."  (see 2 Corinthians 8:1-7 NIV )


We encourage all people to come as they are.  As we said before and will say it again, at Cornerstone Bible Church, instead of passing the plate, we only give offering out of overflowing joy from our own hearts.  At our church, we don't raise our budget through any sale either. We completely rely on God's abundant grace and the generosity from all faithful members along with partnership from friends and family.  We have learned that as people give, more blessings overflow into their lives because the Scripture teaches us "It is more blessed to give than to receive."  (Acts 20:35 NIV.)


Jesus also said, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:21 NIV)

If you have any questions regarding "Lifestyle of Giving" lessons and our financial accountability in the church or would like to give financially in supporting our ministry to reach out more Laotians and others for Christ, please contact us at any time.


What's the best way to give your offerings in our church?
