MBC / ABOUT US / GIVING
Giving changes lives. It helps others and grows us like God.
If you'd like to give towards the ministry of MBC we'd love your support.
WHY SHOULD I GIVE?
God gave first: We worship a generous God. The most famous verse in the Bible says that ‘God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son ( John 3:16). We give because God first gave to us.
To worship God: Jesus warned that it is impossible to serve both God and money ( Matthew 6:24). One of the ways we demonstrate the fact that we worship God and not our money is by giving it away.
To be enriched: Paul told the Ephesians elders, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’ ( Acts 20:35). The act of giving is spiritually enriching.
WHO SHOULD I GIVE TO?
While all of our giving is ultimately a gift given to God, the Bible highlights a few key people groups that Christians can and should give to:
The local church ( Galatians 6:6; 1 Timothy 5:17-18)
Missionaries and church planters ( Philippians 4:16; 2 Corinthians 11:8)
The Christian poor ( 1 Corinthians 16:1-2; James 2:14-17)
Those in need ( Luke 14:12-14; Galatians 6:10)
HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE?
The Bible calls us to show sacrifical generosity in response to God's grace shown to us in Jesus. So when we're deciding how much to give a good starting point is to ask:
