Faith Promise is the only source for funds to provide financial support for the missionaries Westminster supports. These commitments of faith promise are usually made during the Missions Conference held each February. However, a faith promise can be turned in at anytime to our church office. Please prayerfully consider your “Faith Promise” giving for Missions.
What is Faith Promise?
- My trusting God to enable me to give more than I thought I could give and, at the same time, meet all my needs because He has promised me to do so.
- Verses that support this: 2 Corinthians 8 and 9; 1 Chronicles 29:14,16; Luke 6:38; Malachi 3:10; Psalm 37:5; 2 Chronicles 9:6
What does Faith Promise entail?
- Faith Promise requires a commitment. I commit myself to a specific amount of money, and, by faith based on God’s promises, expect Him to enable me to do it. This helps me to reprogram my whole life priority system so that I begin actively looking for God’s provision.
Who can give?
- God’s Word instructs all believers to go and reach. We pray that every family at Westminster participate.
Where does a Faith Promise come from? From the experience of many individuals and churches, there are three general ways God uses to supply a faith promise.
- Some unexpected income during the year
- Reordering our priorities, in order to save money and then giving those monies as a faith promise
- Creative ways to generate income to give
How do I make a Faith Promise?
- Pray – for what the Lord would have me do and know that what He commands He also enables.
- Commit – myself to make a Faith Promise, realizing that my faith will grow as I stay committed to that promise.
- Give—faithfully as God enables me.
The Faith Promise is a trust between you and God. We do not ask for names on the cards, nor do we call upon you for it. It is given in addition to the other commitments to Westminster. For more information or questions about Missions, please contact Chuck Henson, Missions Team leader.
