The Bible speaks a lot about money, suggesting that our worship of God is significantly displayed through how we handle that part of our lives. The Bible also provides guidance on how we should give, for example 2 Corinthians 9:7, each person should give what they have decided in their heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. We believe that our giving expresses our gratitude to God for the past, exposes our commitment to God in the present, and extends our faith in God for the future. We support the central place that the local church holds in God’s plan for our world, and would suggest that support of His church is something close to God’s heart for us. The generosity of people associated with Beachlands Baptist Church allows us to run many programmes and services in Windsor Park and in the wider community; support people around NZ and overseas who are involved in various missional activities; and employ staff, maintain our physical buildings, and fund our operational costs. Without the combined generosity of many people we could do very little. Your support is highly worthwhile and appreciated no matter what level you give. We’re transparent with our finances and regularly report our financial position, including a full summary in our Annual Report.
If you have questions about giving at Beachlands Baptist, please get in touch. We’d love to talk more.
