Generosity

Why We Give 

We believe that our good resources create an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people here in our community and across the globe. We are always looking for ways to trust God more and more with what He has given us. 

What is Tithing?

Tithing is our starting place in giving. The Bible teaches us about a baseline standard for giving: the tithe (a word that literally means a “tenth”). When we give the first 10% of our income through the local church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others. God also encourages us to give offerings beyond our tithe to specific projects at our local church and to other organizations and causes that we personally believe in.

A Matter of the Heart

God has called us to live open-handedly. That means trusting Him to provide for our needs and not holding too tightly to money or material possessions. When we live like this, we are free to respond to the needs of others and let God be God in our lives as well. When we use our time, talents and finances to love people back to God we are participating in bringing His Kingdom to earth.

Hear from Kelli & Alan Bays

"Giving is ultimately a matter of the heart; an act of love toward our Heavenly Father. Early in our marriage it was difficult to even think about giving 10% of our income. However, we've learned that being obedient to God brings blessings. We are grateful for our ability to give back and we are still growing in our faith and discovering God's plan for our lives."

ECFA's Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, drawn from Scripture, are fundamental to operating with integrity. Accountability to God is vital, but people form their impressions of both people and organizations by looking at the outward appearances (1 Samuel 16:7).

The basis for establishing ECFA and developing Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™ is stated clearly by the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 8:21 (NIV): "For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men." As the New American Standard puts it in verses 20 and 21: "taking precaution that no one should discredit us in our administration of this generous gift, for we have regard for what is honorable, not only in the sight of the Lord but also in the sight of men."

ECFA-accredited ministries are committed to upholding these standards.
