We Give Through The Local Church
Jesus is the head of the church, his body. The local church is the hands and feet of Jesus to a specific local community. The primary way that we give to Jesus is through His church! We believe that believers should be plugged into a local family of believers where they are fed with the word, encouraged, and held accountable. The ministries of the church shouldn’t be supported by big outside donors, but by the partnering believers that make up this local family. So if you’re a part of the family, support the family.
This is not to say Christians should not also contribute to other ministries they feel called to support, over and above their support to the local congregation.
