Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Many churches teach that members are required to give a tithe of income to the church to be obedient to the Old Testament law. We believe that the Church is now under the new covenant of grace and not required to keep the law any longer (Galatians 5:18). In response to Christ’s lavish grace and His cost on the cross, the New Testament goes on to teach proportional giving, and spurs us on to give even more to advance His kingdom as God individually prospers and leads. The New Testament also stresses the importance of a cheerful giver, and giving willingly with an open hand (2 Corinthians 9:7). This heart attitude is what we value most in our members. We also recognize that the final decision of your financial giving is ultimately between you and God. We honor the privacy of this process, and your financial records are kept private. This being said, we have a high level of trust that members are contributing regularly and generously to support our church and believe God will bless and empower us as we joyfully band together to bring Him glory.
But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able thus to offer willingly? For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you.
For informational and tax deduction purposes, we will email and mail year-end statements to the addresses we have on file. You can also access your year-to-date giving through your online giving account.
In efforts to keep our church informed on a regular basis, we will provide quarterly financial updates. This reporting will be led by our finance committee, elders and/or staff members.
Upon year end, we will provide an annual report that will outline all the ways the Lord provided and used the giving of the Church to fulfill His mission. This financial statement will detail year-end income, expenses, and cash reserves.
As a Church who believes that everyone is accountable to what the Lord has entrusted them with. As a result, we will have an independent annual audit of our finances by a Certified Public Accounting firm. This firm will work alongside our audit committee to validate the stewardship of CityLine Bible Church.
Thank you for your faithfulness and generosity.
