Why Do We Give?
As believers, it is vital that we understand what the Lord says about giving. The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us.We give out of an understanding that everything we have is the Lord's in which He has graciously given to us. Our response to that is a heart of gratitude by giving it back to Him. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.

Budget & Finances
Knowing that God wants us to be faithful and generous givers, we counsel, guide and direct our church in the management of finances. Our pastors and deacons review and analyze monthly financial statements to direct the mission of our church, stewarding well the resources given to the church by our people.
Each year, an annual budget is presented to the church body for review, analysis, questions and approval. The operating budget is fundamental to our accountability, transparency and integrity.
