What is a Faith Promise?
A Faith Promise is an agreement between you and God. No one will come to collect it. The promise represents your personal goal of what you want to attempt for God. It should be initiated prayerfully, based on what you are willing to believe God will supply for you to give.
A Faith Promise is a means of giving to God when you don't have anything to give. It means that you will trust God for some of His money to use for world evangelism.
Faith Promise giving is not based on your resources, but on your faith. You promise to give to missions what your Heavenly Father will supply.
Faith Promise giving enables every Christian to have a part in fulfilling the Great Commission.
How Should I Figure My Faith Promise?
A Faith Promise is a plan for giving to God's work in addition to your regular tithes and offerings. A tithe is the one-tenth of your income that belongs to God. Offerings are your gifts above your tites. Together, the tithes and offerings provide for missional & operational needs of the local church.
Faith Promise giving goes a step beyond tithes and offerings: it is trusting God for funds to give towards reaching the world with the gospel.
Faith Promise giving stretches the faith of the giver past its current boundaries.
You should make new Faith Promise commitment every year.
Believe God to increase your Faith Promise giving every year.
How Does My Church Determine Which Missionary to Support?
By direct request and obvious need.
Officially approved ministries are reviewed and received approval from the Missions Task Force and the Ministry Council.
Upon the basis of the Faith Promise Offering which is pledged each year at this time, the missionary's support is determined.
"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."
2 Corinthians 9:7-8
