Giving Changes Lives!
We don’t worship money but we do worship God with our money!
We believe the top competitor for our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things.
We think Christians should be the most generous people (2 Corinthians 9:6) on earth to support worthy causes, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10)!
JESUS AND MONEY
Did you know that Jesus talked quite often about money? Almost half (16) of his 38 parables were about money and possessions. The Bible has 500 verses on prayer and less than 500 verses about faith, but it has more than 2,500 verses about money. It teaches that “our” money and possessions don’t actually belong to us, but they belong to God.
It also encourages us not to spend all of our income onourselves but to consistently, faithfully and joyfully give a percentage or part of it to extend the kingdom of God through the church. The bible teaches generous-stewardship.
HIS OR MINE
Revolution, we believe giving, wether it’s a once of donation, offerings or a percentage of your income is about stewardship. Nothing belongs to us and everything belongs to Jesus. He is the owner and by His grace we are to faitfully steward everything He has given us.
Tithing is not an Old or New Testament Law. Tithing was instituted way before the Law to teach us the principle of stewardship and to give a minimum of 10% back to Jesus, to use in the local church for the expansion of the Gospel. It’s about faith and about making sure that money doesn’t control us.
