Why we give at Liberti

In the New Testament, Paul reminds Corinthian Christians of the motivating principle for their generosity is the generosity of Jesus Christ himself. Jesus gave up all of his eternal wealth that we might share in his riches. In doing so we learn generosity and joyfulness. Understanding the riches we possess in Christ frees us from unhealthy concern for our possessions and motivates us to invest our resources in God’s eternal kingdom.

Paul goes on to outline principles for financially supporting the work of the Church. He writes: “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9.7-8)

Therefore, it is out of an experience and awareness of the gift we’ve received that we give to others.

At Liberti it is our practice to offer a sacrificial portion of all of our resources—time, skills, possessions—as an act of faith and gratitude in response to God’s grace. During our worship services we provide a time for the congregation to give because giving itself is a tangible act of worship, an expression of deep gratitude to God for his generosity to us in Christ.
