Why Do We Give?

Find out more about CPC's giving and why we put such an emphasis on giving

It's Biblical

John 3:16 tells us that "God so loved the world that He gave …" This declaration isn't simply an evangelical promotional slogan or an effective witnessing tool. It's a revelation of the heart of God and a summation of the meaning of the Christian life. If there's one thing the New Testament teaches us, it's that God is love, and that those of us who believe in Him ought to love one another as He has loved us (1 John 4:8, 11). And the message of John 3:16 is that love gives.

To be prepared to receive

Proverbs 11:25 Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.

Think about this: when you extend your hand to give, your open hand is left in the perfect position to receive gifts from someone else.

God doesn't need our gifts, but He wants to bless us immensely. When you open your hand and present your gifts to God, it puts you in the perfect position to receive blessings from Him.

We want to Love, Serve, & Multiply

Our mission is to love, serve, and multiply. One of the ways we work toward this is by giving 10% of all of our donations to a church plant.
