Joyful Giving

At Bark River Bible Church, we see our giving as an integral part of our worship; in fact, we see it as the overflow of our hearts’ worship of God. Our giving should not be based on legalistic rules, or efforts to win God’s approval, but should be given generously and with thanksgiving — not meeting an arbitrary percentage, but sacrificing with the joy that comes from treasuring the news that Jesus sacrificed everything, and all that we have is His.

Ephesians 1:3

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.”

Giving should be done with a worshipful and thankful heart that overflows into an attitude of gratitude on account of our already existent spiritual blessings.

Furthermore, please do not give to this ministry if you are not a believer. First, place your trust in Christ alone for the safekeeping of your soul and then begin to grow in knowledge of His Word. The Holy Spirit will later convict of your privilege to give to support God’s work. It also should be understood that you cannot earn salvation through financial giving. Faith alone in Christ alone saves and giving is the privilege of the child of God who has already been born again by the Spirit of God.

Finally, if you are not a member or regular attender of Bark River Bible Church and are still blessed by this ministry resulting in a desire to give to it, we would ask that you give first to support your own home church. After giving to your own local church, or if you do not have a church home of your own, we welcome your financial giving to Bark River Bible Church!
