God influences the world through his people. He gives to us so He can give through us. The Bible tells us that everything we have is a gift from God (1 Chronicles 29:14). As you give both faithfully and willingly, the world is changed for the glory of God: the gospel is preached, lives are touched, people are fed, bodies are healed, churches are built; and you, in turn, are blessed by God.

The goal of stewardship is to uplift our way of life; a way of viewing all that we are and all that we have as gifts from God to be used for God’s glory and the service of others. The objective is to educate, inspire, and motivate the congregation with the understanding that stewardship is about God, and managing all that we have: time, talent, and treasures; God’s gifts to each of us, individually.
"To those who so return the tithe, God offers to give such abundant blessing that there will not be room to receive it." (Matthew 3:10)
