Guiding Principles:

  • The scriptural mandate for helping the poor applies to each of us,
    and to our churches

  • Assistance without the Word is futile, and the Word without assistance is inauthentic

  • There is practical wisdom in the adage “volunteer locally, give internationally”

  • Giving effectively is key not just to responsible stewardship, but to giving joyfully

  • Being saved is just the beginning of our story;  Each of us are built, and
    blessed, to be a blessing

  • What moves us?  Read Our Story.
