Faith Promise Giving
Lifestreams South Perth financially supports our C2C mission family through Faith Promise Giving.
What is the Faith Promise?
The Faith Promise is an invitation to partner with God as He works in this world. It is money that we give towards our C2C mission family which is above and beyond our normal tithe. The Faith Promise is based on generosity and faith, trusting God to provide the money that you have committed to give.
How does it relate to my regular tithe?
Tithing is a clear Scriptural principle; those monies are used to run our local church and ministry. Faith promise is above and beyond this money. It is a way for us to give specifically toward reaching the unreached of the world. We help fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) through the Faith Promise.
How do I decide how much to give?
Firstly pray! Ask God how much He wants you to give towards the Faith Promise each month. Paul says that “Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly” (2 Corinthians 8:12). So, make this commitment before God with joy and thanks – not through guilt or compulsion (2 Corinthians 9:5-7).
Paul also teaches that our giving is in proportion to what we have (2 Corinthians 8:11), but he also encourages us to be generous – to be willing to step out in faith. Don’t be surprised at the amount God lays on your heart. It may be larger than what you are comfortable with.
How long will this Faith Promise commitment last?
Our Faith Promise commitment is for 12 months. Faith Promise giving is reviewed on a yearly basis.
How will God provide for my Faith Promise commitment?
Seeing God provide this money for the Faith Promise is a wonderful faith journey! As this is a commitment between you and God, trust Him to provide. He may provide through increasing your income or decreasing you expenses. It may be an unexpected gift – money that God provides because He trusts you to pass it on to the Faith Promise.
For others, God may lead you to sacrifice a luxury – like your daily coffee or a takeaway meal – or to give out of your abundance.
Have faith (Matthew 13:31-32) and give as God enables you to give.
I would like to give towards the Faith Promise missions giving.
