Financial Principles

  1. Every resource of this ministry outreach will be obtained thru prayer, solicitation, gifts and kind donations.

  2. We will never enlarge or sustain this ministry by contracting debts. This is contrary to both the Scriptures and of the Spirit. We will carry the needs of this ministry to the Lord and act according to the direction that He gives.

  3. We will not compete with other biblical mission agencies; but will use the resources that God has given to us to work in partnership with them.

  4. Volunteers in this ministry are worthy of their labor. 

  5. Our Goal is not to enlarge ourselves but to be a stepping stone towards self-sufficiency within the Communities we serve. We Will Judge our usefulness according to the Scriptures.

The Apostle Paul captures the essence of this standard in Philippians 4:17: “Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account.” Both Christian individuals and organizations should look not only to their own interests but to the interests of others.

Providing money for evangelical ministries is God’s work. Both those who seek funds and those who give are God’s servants and stewards. Those seeking funds for the work of God’s Kingdom should see the givers as participants and individuals, not as checkbooks. The person giving is more important than the gift. Generosity motivated by the example of Jesus Christ and by God’s grace will result in spiritual blessing, joy, and thankfulness. As Paul instructed Timothy, “Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life” (1 Timothy 6:17-19).
