The Only Evangelism That Works: Be An Imagebearer

WHAT IS GIVING ABOUT?

  • Giving has NOTHING to do with MONEY

  • Giving has NOTHING to do with MONEY
  • Giving has NOTHING to do with BUDGETS
  • Giving has NOTHING to do with PAYING BILLS

                               BUT…

  • Giving has EVERYTHING to do with personal spiritual growth
  • Giving has EVERYTHING to do with Personal Discipline, and giving is a Means of Grace
  • Giving has everything to do with Discipleship to Jesus Christ
  • Giving is all about GRACE…God’s to us and ours to others
  • Giving grows as faith grows…the two work together….never separately
  • The Financial health of a church is a direct reflection of the church’s SPIRITUAL health
  • Generosity is a Fruit of the Holy Spirit
  • Tithing (10% of one’s income) is a consistent Biblical theme and an expression of our trust
    in God’s providence.
  • United Methodists are in the top 1/3 of the population in affluence
  • United Methodists are 28th of the top 30 denominational groups in giving
  • United Methodists are 46th among the top 63 denominations
