Ways you can give
Giving is part of our lifestyle. We give because He first gave. By partnering financially with C3 Rockingham, you become part of our mission to 'Go into all the world and make disciples', locally and internationally. Thank you to everyone who gives at C3 Church in Rockingham. Your giving is changing the world!
According to the Bible, it is good, proper and right to bring tithes and offerings into the house of God for the support, maintenance and vision of our church. The bible refers to this as the ‘ministry of giving’. We thank God for generous members who faithfully set aside a tenth of their income and sow it into our church.
There are also many people who give above and beyond their tithe as an act of gratitude and blessing toward our church vision. This generosity has made it possible for us to buy land, build buildings and establish a geographical presence of God in our city.
Ultimately our giving comes from a generous heart. We believe that if you allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you, He will show you what to give and this should be done with a grateful heart.
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT COVENANT GIVING
The Bible is full of instructions and commandments about money and how to honour God and overcome greed. A major part of this is being a good steward of what God has put into our care. The Bible is also clear that there is an economy outside the world’s economy: God’s Economy!
For a Christian, prosperity and abundance is not for selfish indulgence but to be a blessing! The Lord’s intention is for His church to always have everything they need and plenty left over to share with others.
