Watch our most recent mid-week message here.
It’s a joy and privilege, not an obligation to be fulfilled. God is so generous; He sent His Son to give us life to save us. So, in response to all He’s done, we give to His house so others can know Jesus and experience the freedom and forgiveness He offers.
Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. If you’ve never given before, we invite you to take the challenge and put God to the test (Malachi 3:10)!
In the Bible, we learn there are two different types of giving: tithes and offerings. The tithe is our baseline standard for giving. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives.
An offering is when we feel called to give generously above and beyond, when we see a need and are moved to meet it. We hope that you as an individual or as a family will prayerfully consider how God may be inviting you to get in the story and give.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory.”—Ephesians 3:20–21 (NIV)
Here are different areas you can give to in addition to your normal tithe.
Fuel the mission to change our world and be a part of what is happening through Calvary all across the globe. We believe in sending the gospel into communities in need of Jesus through international partnerships, social justice projects, local missionaries, and church planting with the goal of long-term impact in a region.
Invest in the mission to build strategic spaces and places across South Florida where the gospel can flourish through the local church. Kingdom Builders are visionary givers who see the power of investing in the future of God’s house and His people. These gifts also help raise up new leaders who are trained and mobilized to make more disciples.
Support our commitment to reach out when crisis hits. These gifts are used to serve lost and hurting people through local outreach which includes residential programs, prison visitations, FoodShare, support for single mothers and widows, hurricane and disaster relief, benevolence care and crisis intervention for families in need.
Giving to Global Outreach will allows us to support global missionaries and churches for long-term kingdom impact, including church planting opportunities and special projects.
Giving to Kingdom Builders helps propel our mission to make disciples in churches across South Florida through the spaces and places God has entrusted us with. This fund will facilitate the growth of God’s work through ministry development, internships, leadership training, and improvement of our properties.
Giving to Relief and Restoration helps us reach lost and hurting people through outreach and support ministries by aiding in crisis relief, supporting local residential programs, and providing for people in need.
As a church family, we know that fighting for the souls of people will cost us something, so we have committed tremendous amounts of time, energy, and resources to pursue Vision 2023.
In the fall of 2018, Calvary Chapel launched Vision 2023. We did this in order to address the unique brokenness of South Florida through a massive effort to double the number of disciples in our region over the next five years. As a church family, we know that fighting for the souls of people will cost us something, so we have committed tremendous amounts of time, energy, and resources to pursue Vision 2023. And so far, the response has been nothing short of miraculous!
