"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all." - 1 Chronicles 29:11-12
Giving is one of the great privileges that God has blessed His people with. I know what you're thinking...of course, that's what a church is going to say, they need people to give. Yes, God's work does depend on God's people being faithful, but that misses the point of blessing.
Do you remember the feeling you get every Christmas when you give a gift to someone else and it is exactly what they wanted or needed? Do you remember that feeling? That's God's blessing to you! That's the work of God being done through you!
Giving is an act of worship when we surrender back to God what we recognize is rightfully His - it was never really ours, we were just given responsibility and management of His resources. We have been hesitant to add online giving to our website because we did not want to see the worship removed from our giving. Giving is worship when we consciously recognize His ownership of what we are giving and our dependence upon Him to help us live on what we haven't given.
At Northside, the regular, consistent giving of the regular attenders and members of Northside Baptist Church supports the regular ministries of the church including our Oureach ministries (local evangelism through our Benevolence ministry, and Global Missions through our Missions ministry). If you are a member or regular attender and you are unable to be at services on a weekend, you can still worship through our Online Giving.
If you would like to support our church without it costing you basically anything, check out our Giving without Expense area that cover different fundraisers of the church. Most are to the benefit of our short-term Missions trips, but others help the church in general.
If you are struggling to give because your finances are in less than stellar shape, please consider taking one of our Crown Financial classes on sound, Biblical, financial principles for your home or business.
