“Each one should give what he has decided in his heart to give” 2 Corinthians 9:7
The financial support of the ministry at St Peter’s is entirely dependent on the giving of members of the congregation. We therefore encourage all those who consider themselves members of the St Peter’s church family to consider carefully their response to supporting the ongoing needs of the church.
Here are some key principles of Christian giving from the Bible in 2 Corinthians Chapters 8 & 9. We are to give:
Sacrificially (8:1-2) accepting the personal cost
Generously (8:3-7) as much as we are able for the salvation of others
Gratefully (8:8-9) for Christ became poor that we might be rich in Him
Realistically (8:10-12) according to our capacity
Equally (8:13-15) giving out of our plenty to help others
Carefully (8:16-24) so that we are good stewards of God’s money
Actually (9:1-5) ensuring our practice matches our claims and promises
Freely (9:6-7) cheerfully without compulsion or reluctance
Confidently (9:8-11) knowing that God will always supply our genuine needs
Encouragingly (9:12-17) so that others praise God for what he does through us
