We exist to glorify God by reaching unsaved people and by supplying what is spiritually necessary to grow our congregation in Christ. That is, to KNOW CHRIST and to MAKE CHRIST KNOWN.
To do this effectively in a sustainable way means we must, firstly, ensure our staff, facilities & operating resources at TCC are appropriate (i.e. that we maintain the “critical mass” necessary to support our unchanging vision in an ongoing & growing manner); and we must, secondly, ensure that we never ignore Jesus’ call to be global witnesses here, there and everywhere (Acts 1:8). We are mindful that to whom much is given, much is expected … and that with great privilege comes great responsibility.
God’s work is normally financed through the regular tithes and offerings of God’s people.
In the Old Testament, God commanded His people to give at least a tenth (“tithe”) of all their produce to God in joyful response to His blessings to them.
The New Testament never stipulates percentages. But, in some practical advice about a collection for the Jerusalem poor, Paul says:
On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.
(1 Cor 16:2)
This tells us that as Christians:
- We should plan ahead to give responsibly; and
- Our giving should be proportional to our income.
What Can You Do?
BE PRAYING … depending on God and seeking God’s will for our lives is the foundation of everything we do. Pray for our church, our leadership, our ministries, and our outreach.
BE PARTICIPATING … through committed partnership with others at TCC. Be regular in attendance at Sunday church, Connect Groups (Home Bible Studies) and church activities.
BE SERVING … see what God is doing in our church & where you can be directly involved according to your abilities & talents, and then volunteer for some area of service.
BE SHARING … find ways to share your life and faith with others, share what God is doing at TCC, and find ways to partner with others who are sharing in places around the world.
BE SUPPORTING … turn your prayers and faith into action. Carefully review your own finances and then make a giving decision that honours God and that is right for you.
