What is Stewardship & Generosity?
When you give to Faithbridge, God does something amazing. He
multiplies your gifts and does more with it than any of us could ask or
imagine. Your giving becomes part of God’s plan to resource the local church to
do His work here on earth. As Christ followers, we believe God has given us
everything we have and, while we’re on this earth, we’re stewards of His
generous gifts. And He also allows us to live generously and be a part of all
He is doing in your community and around the world through local and global
missions partners. Know that we honor your gifts with faithful stewardship,
ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial
integrity of Faithbridge remains beyond reproach.

"'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,' says the LORD of hosts, 'if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.'" (Malachi 3:8-10)
This is the only place in Scripture where God encourages us to test Him, in our giving. It's definitely a step of faith, a step He promises to bless!
How to make your estimate:
-Begin with prayer
-Determine your current giving as a percentage of your income
-Set your giving goal: if you're not tithing, start with a lower percentage and then plan to increase that percentage each year. The key is to begin the spiritual discipline of regular, consistent giving.
-Submit your Estimate of Giving below! We'll send it back to you mid-year so you can see how you're doing with your giving.
