Declaration of Commitment
Thank you for your faithful commitment and sacrificial giving year after year. Because of your faithful stewardship, new congregations, ministries and schools have been started and expanded. Tradition dating back to the days of the apostles has been that Christians support one another. In II Corinthians 8:1-5, Paul writes about the Macedonian churches and acknowledges their generosity which resulted from the grace God had given them. But verse 5 is key, "They gave themselves first to the Lord, and then to us in keeping with God's will." Our prayer is that your commitment, whatever it may be, will come after you first give yourselves to the Lord.
