What is a

FAITH PROMISE?

By Paul Brannan

IT IS A

NEW EXPERIENCE IN GIVING!

we have only two choices
WE HAVE ONLY TWO CHOICES:

1. WE MUST GO AS MISSIONARIES -

Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”Mark 16:15 (NIV)

or

2. WE MUST SEND OTHERS -

Paul wrote, “And how will anyone go and tell them unless someone sends him?”Rom 10:15 (TLB)

COMMITTED MONTHLY GIVING MAKES THIS POSSIBLE.

IS YOUR PROMISE REALLY MADE IN

  • If it is an amount that you can afford to give, it doesn’t require as much faith.
  • If the amount you have promised to give isn’t a challenge to you, it may not stretch your faith.

FAITH?

why must i fill out a faith promise card

Missionaries cannot leave for the field until their budget is complete.

WHY MUST I FILL OUT A FAITH PROMISE CARD?

Missions leadership will not know how much the church can commit to support missionaries until your promises are totaled.

i don t want others to know what i am giving

Amounts, but not names, will be announced.

I DON’T WANT OTHERS TO KNOW WHAT I AM GIVING!
  • Confidentiality will be maintained.
  • Only those who administer missions funds will see your card.
if i made a faith promise last year must i make a new one
IF I MADE A FAITH PROMISE LAST YEAR, MUST I MAKE A NEW ONE?
  • Yes, because each faith promise is made for one year.
  • Yes, because you WILL want to increase your giving for next year.
  • Yes, because we start fresh today.
