Why we give.

Thank you for your generosity and financial commitment to support the ministries at Henderson Avenue Baptist Church!

God is generous and so He calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

Giving is inherent to the very nature of God the Father (John 3:16) , God the Son (Eph. 5:2) and a growing Christ follower (Rom. 12:8).  The giving of offerings is part of worship and the attitude of the heart matters to God (2 Cor. 9:7-8). Giving is way for us:

  • To glorify God (2 Cor. 9:13)
  • To give thanks to the Lord (2 Cor. 9:10, 12)
  • To demonstrate our trust (2 Cor. 9:6, 8-9)
  • To acknowledge that everything we possess is from God's providential hand (1 Cor. 4:7)

Your giving supports the ministry of the Word, the worship of our great God, and the livelihood of our pastors and missionaries.  These are eternal investments that, when used wisely, will not be destroyed by moth or rust.
