A Matter of Faith, Not Guilt

What does the Bible say about money? Quite a bit, actually, which is why we can’t ignore the subject. When it comes to giving, we try not to overcomplicate it because it’s not complicated— it’s a matter of faith! What you decide to give is a matter of faith between you and God. To further strengthen our commitment to this point, the pastors of Hope do not know and do not want to know what individual members give as an offering. If you consider Hope your church home, please pray, listen and give according to what God lays on your heart.  

“Each of you must give as you make up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
