Why
Give

We respond to the gospel by bringing our first and best because God gave His first and best in Jesus. As a movement for all people to discover and deepen a relationship with Jesus Christ, we see generosity as a gift of God that further transforms us into the likeness of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Why Generosity?

The Church of Eleven22 views generosity through the lens of the gospel-centered principle of the first or the "principle of preeminence."

Basically, this means one thing: God is first.

God is first.

  • Genesis 1:1
  • John 1:1-3
  • Colossians 1:15-20

God went first.

  • Romans 5:8
  • 1 John 4:19
  • John 3:16

Therefore, we are to put God first.

  • Exodus 20:2-3
  • Matthew 6:33
  • Proverbs 3:9-10

As a response to the gospel, disciples of Jesus Christ joyfully and freely bring our first and our best to God. To understand clearly how we approach tithes and offerings, please take some time to hear Pastor Joby teach this Biblical principle.
