WHY GIVE APPRECIATED ASSETS?
When Christians give to their church and other ministries they care about, most simply give from their income or cash reserves. However, this is not always the best plan of stewardship for the giver. Giving appreciated assets such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds and real estate provide double tax benefits not available when giving cash. You not only receive a charitable deduction for the fair market value of your gift, but you also avoid capital gains tax. As stewards in God’s kingdom, we should take advantage of tax incentives available to us in order to harness as much as possible for the Lord’s work and our families. So, if you’re thinking of selling an appreciated asset and you want to give back to the Lord, we can help. We can assist you in developing the best plan of stewardship as you give to your church and other ministries you care about. This service is a gift to you for your faithful support.
The simple answer is we believe everything we have comes from God in the first place. We give because we believe God has entrusted us to be leaders for hope in our church and our community.
What does "tithe" mean?
The Bible teaches that a guideline for giving is called the tithe (Leviticus 27:30). That is giving 10% of what we earn back to God.
What does "offering" mean?
An offering is a gift given to a specific need above and beyond our tithe.
What the Bible teaches
Giving acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have (James 1:17).
Giving reflects our trust that God will provide for us (Matthew 6:19-24).
Giving allows us to be active participants in God's work on earth (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).
