Worship & Giving

The Bible gives us three guidelines in which to give: tithe, sacrifice, and responsibility.

In the Old Testament believers were required to give a tenth of their income to the Lord. The New Testament doesn't specify a tithe but clearly teaches that we have an even greater responsibility on this side of the cross of Jesus Christ. The Christians in Macedonia demostrated sacrifice as the Bible says "they gave as much as they were able and even beyond their ability" (2 Cor. 8:3). 

We believe our responsibility, as followers of Jesus Christ, is to give "according to our ability" (Acts 11:29).  Our giving is a joyful response to the grace we have experienced in and through Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul says, "I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love for you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, he became poor, so that through his poverty you might become rich." (2 Cor. 8:8-9).  We do not give to gain God's favor, we give generously as we have received from the Lord.

Investing in your church is both a strategic and wise decision. Strategic because we have the ability to impact this community with the message of hope that is found in Christ. If Addisville is the place where you have the greatest personal accountability and commitiment and the place that is feeding you and equipping you, we ask you to invest in Addisville and make it your priority in giving.
