Why We GiveQuite simply, we give because God has first given to us! How? Well, God has given to us every material thing we need to sustain our lives here on earth. Scripture clearly affirms that God is the Creator of all things, and because He is, the earth and everything in it belongs to Him (Psalm 24:1-2). Yet He has appointed us, the only creatures created in His image, as rulers and stewards over His creation (Genesis 1:28) and has given to us from His creation everything we need to sustain life. Even our ability to generate wealth comes from Him (Deuteronomy 8:18; 1 Chronicles 29:12). In short, everything we have is not ours but His; He has simply entrusted those things to our care.
When we give to God through tithes and offerings, we aren’t giving to Him because He needs them. Rather, we give as a way of expressing (1) our acknowledgement that He is the true owner of all that we have and (2) our thanksgiving for all that He has given to sustain us…both here on earth and for eternity! And so, ultimately, our giving is an expression of our heartfelt worship to Him! In addition, from a practical perspective, our giving allows us to joyfully participate in God’s mission here on earth: a mission to know Him and make Him known in our neighborhoods, all parts of our city and across the globe!
AccountabilityWe believe transparency is key in our pursuit of a better relationship with God, and our finances are no different. We have setup multiple avenues of accountability to ensure that we are stewarding our resources to the best of our ability. Each month our financial committee and deacons review and analyze monthly financial statements to ensure the resources given to CHBC are being stewarded well and maximized towards Kingdom work.
