Liturgy of Stewardship


“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do, says the e Lord Almighty, I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Let me prove it to you!”


Malachi 3:10 (New Living Translation)




Leader: If we are willing and glad to be yoked with Jesus, we must think as He thinks; desire what He desires; love as He loves: hate what He hates.


Congregation: If we are willing and glad to be yoked with Jesus, we must pray as He prays; go where He wants us to go; stay where He wants us to stay; do what He wants us to do; endure what He will endure.


Leader: “Why do we pledge offerings to God and the Church?”


Congregation: We want our Church to take more of the blessings of God’s gospel and love to more people.


Leader: “Why do we pledge offerings to God and the Church?”


Congregation: Pledges remind us that all we have is God’s and that we must be faithful and wise stewards.


Leader: Christian stewardship is a person’s grateful and obedient response to God’s redeeming love, expressed by the use of all resources for the fulfillment of Christ’s mission in the world.


In Unison: Christian stewardship recognizes all of life as a trust from God; acknowledges that a person’s response is empowered by the Holy Spirit; involves Christians individually and corporately; requires responsible management of all God-given resources; maintains that we should dedicate a worthy portion of our time, abilities, and money for the advancement of Christ’s mission in the world and through the Church.

The Scriptures


We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men, divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instructions; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried.
