We believe that God is generous and that we are called to be like him. Therefore as his children, we want to be generous with all that we have.
Not only do we want and encourage people to be generous with their lives and their time with one another, but we also want to be generous with our finances. We do follow the biblical model of tithing 10% (Deuteronomy 14:22), however our aim is to live a lifestyle of generosity as this pleases and honours God.’
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7
