What is a Faith Promise?
5 Keys:

  1. A means of giving to God when you don't have anything to give
    • Trusting God for some of His money to use for His Kingdom
    • An act of stewardship
    • CCC determines her missions outreach for the missionaries
  2. It is a promise that is not based on your known resources, but on your faith
    • You promise to give what your Heavenly Father will supply!
    • "My daddy will pay for this"
  3. An agreement between you and God
    • No one will come or call to collect it
    • We will not send you a bill!
    • This promise represents your personal desire, what you want to attempt for God
  4. A plan for giving to God's work in addition to your regular tithes and offerings
    • Tithe is 1/10 of your earned income
    • Offerings are your sacrificial gifts as the Holy Spirit leads
    • Alms are compassionate giving to relieve the oppressed or of giving to the poor
  5. Faith Promise giving stretches our faith past its current boundaries
    • We will see how God supplies the funds
    • Faith Promise giving enables every Christian to have a part in fulfilling the Great Commission
