PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL WITH OUR FINANCES
We desire to give generously to further the mission of the church for the glory of God.
(Acts 20:35, Deuteronomy 16:17, 2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
At Shady Oaks, we love to give in order to benefit others. We believe that giving financially is a powerful way we can demonstrate to God that he is first in our lives.
Jesus talked more about this subject than heaven, hell or prayer. To experience the full benefits of being a Christ-follower, we must also understand what it means to be a giver.
"But just as you excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us - see that you also excel in this grace of giving." 2 Cor. 8:7 (NIV)
Giving is an integral part of our relationship with God.
•It acknowledges Him as the giver of everything we have.
•It reflects our trust that He will continue to provide for us.
•It allows us to be a part of His work here on Earth.
•It's a way for us to follow through on what He's asked us to do. In the Bible, God tells us to, "Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best." (Proverbs 3:9 MSG)
The Bible teaches us that our baseline standard for giving is the tithe -- contributing 10% of our income to the church. At Shady Oaks, we know tithing has been a turning point for many people to experience the blessings of following Jesus.
When God stirs us to give beyond our tithe, it's referred to as an offering. You can direct your offering to the cause that resonates with you.
