East Gate Alliance Church is a registered charity and we strive to be careful stewards of the funds entrusted to us. The Bible says that God gave his only Son, Jesus, so that we would be saved. But not only did God save us, he also lavishes on us uncountable blessings and an eternal inheritance we can’t comprehend. God’s generosity towards us compels us to be generous in return.
"Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
— Luke 6:38 (NIV)
Everything we have belongs to God. Therefore, we do not really decide how much of our wealth to give, as much as we decide how much of God’s wealth we want to give back to Him. In the Sermon on the Mount, Christ calls his followers to exceed the expectations of the law, so too with giving, we believe that God honours the cheerful giver who faithfully gives a tithe, or ten percent, and who is extravagantly generous with the remaining ninety percent. We believe that giving is an act of worship and reflects our love for, and trust in Him.
