Benefits of Online Giving
When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith! The Bible teaches that we are to honor God with the “First Fruits” of our labor (Proverbs 3:9). Simplicity – You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or send in an offering by mail when you’re on a trip. Security – We utilize PayPal, a leader in the e-commerce industry, for your secure online giving. Focus – Instead of having to worry about writing a check and filling out an envelope during the service, you can be fully focused on the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering. Helping – Online giving is more cost effective for our church to process, and it makes our record keeping much easier.
Types of Giving
Financial giving at Evangel can generally be divided into three categories: tithes & offerings, Haiti FeedONE and missions giving. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church we attend on a regular basis. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering. Lastly, part of our mission at Evangel is to "serve our world". Evangel supports missionaries and missions projects around the world. You can read more about our missions support here.
The work of Evangel is funded by God’s provision through the tithes and offerings of faithful members and attenders. At Evangel, we honor God’s provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Evangel remains beyond reproach. Members of Evangel will receive, at least annually, a copy of financial giving statements. All tithes, offerings, and gifts are tax deductible for income tax purposes to the extent allowed by law.
