We give because God gave first
Scripture says giving is to be viewed as a spiritual act of worship and that it is to be the joy and responsibility of every believer. Giving money to the Lord is not something that we are supposed to view as a burdensome obligation, rather quite the contrary. This is a radical and counter-cultural point of view. Because while the rest of the world worships money as god, we are to worship God with our money.
The Bible teaches that God has called every believer to give regularly, generously, cheerfully, and in proportion to what they have been given. This sacrificial kind of giving makes sense in light of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. As we invest in God’s work, we are lay up treasures in heaven and participate in what the Lord is doing on the earth now. (2 Corinthians 9:7, Matthew 6:20, Proverbs 3:9)
At the end of every year detailed financial statements, listing contributions made online or at the church that year, are given out. When you give online you will also be emailed a receipt immediately. If you don’t come to Vive City Chapel in person, but you listen to messages online and feel called to give above and beyond what you give to your local church, we appreciate you partnering together with us!
