When Scripture refers to generosity, it uses the idea of giving our “first fruits.” Simply put, this idea means that if something is important, we should do it first. We do it with our savings, we do it with our monthly bills, and Jesus invites us to do it with our generosity as well! When you automate your giving, you are being intentional about being generous. It’s a spiritual decision that will help you grow in your faith.

WHY DO WE GIVE?
We believe the top competitor for our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things.
We think Christians should be the most generous people (2 Corinthians 9:6) on earth to support worthy causes, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10)!
