FINANCIAL PARTNERSHIP AT KAC

The choices we make regarding our giving to gospel ministry have profound implications for our spiritual health.  Such choices reveal, among other things, whether we’re using our money in following King Jesus and promoting His kingdom, or seeking to live like kings in building our own little kingdoms.      

If KAC is your church family, please give generously to provide for its needs.  The vast majority of the costs of church life and ministry are covered by us as members of God’s family here at KAC.

What does the Bible say about giving?
A Lot!  Here’s just some (why not look up these references):   

  • Giving is a way of honouring and pleasing God (Proverbs 3:9, 2 Corinthians 9:7)
  • Giving helps show us whether we treasure God over earthly things (Matthew 6:21)
  • Giving should be made to support the local church where we are taught and benefit from spiritually (Galatians 6:6 and 1 Timothy 5:17-18)
  • Giving helps to reveal who our true master is (Matthew 6:24)
  • Giving is an opportunity to excel in godliness (2 Corinthians 8:7)

How much should I give to God’s work?
A generous amount.

Does this mean I should tithe?  The word tithe simply means ‘tenth’.  In the Old Testament, the tithe was to be the first and best of whatever God’s people harvested and it was to be given back to God.  Tithing was a faith issue, not a wealth issue.

In our day, the requirement for God’s people to give 10% is superseded by a new principle – that of generosity.  The repeated principle in the New Testament is cheerful, sacrificial generosity that flows from faith, out of love for God and others, in thankfulness for God’s amazing gift of free forgiveness and life in Christ Jesus.  This side of the cross, as people who have received God’s amazing grace in Jesus, it would be difficult for us to argue that generosity amounts to giving less than God’s people in OT times.  While there is no clear command in the New Testament to tithe as a matter of law, and you should decide in your heart what to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, but cheerfully, I would encourage you to prayerfully consider whether 10% of your income (from all your income streams) may be a good starting point towards giving generously and sacrificially to gospel work, while also being generous with the rest of your income towards one-off gifts and giving to other good causes.
