Sharing our gifts of time, talent, and financial resources
“Bring the whole tithe…test me in this says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” – Malachi 3:10
At New Hope Church, we give our gifts not in order to gain favor with God, but out of gratitude for the gift of our salvation in Jesus Christ, so that in our whole life we may show ourselves grateful to God for His many blessings. Our gifts include time, talents, and financial resources.
We believe that, in response to Christ’s abundant giving to us, we should increasingly seek to submit our personal resources to Him, displaying a spirit of generosity and cheerfulness (Matthew 6:19-21 and 33; Matthew 23:23; Luke 6:38; Luke 21:1-4; Malachi 3:8-10; 2 Corinthians 8 and 9; Proverbs 3:9-10).
