Investing in the Kingdom

In our local church, money is very important because it's important to God. How we use our money is a form of worship. How we give matters to God. That's why, at Summitview, we don't pass a collection plate (so that our giving isn't under compulsion and so that it is done cheerfully). Giving is critical for two reasons:

1) It is a practical expression of faith in God’s presence and provision
2) The local church cannot survive without the tithing of its members

God designed it this way. If we want to see faith active and thriving, and our church well-supplied for its mission to the world, we cannot ignore God’s call to return to him a tenth of what he has given to us (see 2 Corinthians 8:1-5 and Malachi 3:6-12). For more about what the Bible says about giving, check out Randy Alcorn's booklet. Instructions on how to give online are also below.
