Faith Promise Giving Explained

What in the World Is Faith Promise Giving?

Here at LifeBridge we call giving to the cause of world missions “Faith Promise Giving,” because it is an accurate description of what we are called to do. Let’s work our way back in order to move forward in our giving to the Great Commission.

GIVING  Faith Promise Giving is just that, GIVING financially to world missions. We give generously, joyfully, and sacrificially because Christ first gave Himself for us. "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich." (2Corinthians 8:9). His grace enables us to give our hearts back to Him as obedient followers. Jesus said that where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Our giving follows our hearts. Give your heart to Jesus and His global mission and your treasure, time, and talent will follow. Matthew 6:21; 2 Corinthians 8:3-5

PROMISE  Faith Promise Giving is simply a PROMISE to give a certain amount of money on a consistent basis over and above your tithe. It is a commitment or vow we personally make to the Lord Jesus Christ and His local church. At LifeBridge, it is a voluntary commitment to give a certain amount on a consistent basis for the coming year to plant, establish, and multiply local churches all around the world.  Deuteronomy 23:21-23; Ecclesiastes 5:4; Psalm 50:14-15; 2 Corinthians 8:10-12

FAITH  Faith Promise Giving - like everything in the Christian life - requires FAITH in order to be pleasing to God. The Bible says that without faith it is impossible to please God and whatever does not originate from faith is sin. The message is clear: an obedient faith is what puts a smile on the face of God and makes our giving acceptable in His sight. Such faith is a gift God graciously gives to not only individuals but to entire local churches. Faith takes God at His word and gives accordingly. Such faith enables us to keep our promises even when it seems humanly or economically impossible. Such faith is demonstrated by consistent giving even in hard times. Such faith trusts God to do His part in providing and commits to doing our part in giving eagerly, generously, and faithfully.  Hebrews 11:6; Romans 14:23; 2 Corinthians 8:7

Faith Promise Giving is simply a way to glorify God by giving to world missions over and above our tithe through our local church. By doing so, we partner with God and His missionaries in making Jesus known for the joy of all peoples.

 

Everyone doing their part expands God's global mission through LifeBridge and bridges the gap to all peoples!
