Making Change: Giving is Good

In our world today, we find that proportional giving to God is continuing to decline. At present, Christians only give 2.5% of their income to God (per capital). That is lower than the giving was during the Great Depression in the 1930’s. At that time giving dropped to 3.3% of the overall income.

What does this tell us? As a majority, Christians have neglected a vital part of their Spiritual growth in learning to trust God with their lives because they have held back a central part of their lives from God. In large part, we have neglected giving generously to the Lord. Listen in as explore the subject of "Giving is Good"...

    Plus Nothing: There is Freedom in Christ
    Series: Plus Nothing
    Freedom is an interesting concept–even the word free can sometimes be confusing. We sometimes look at freedom as an option to choose anything we want, but that really isn’t the case...
    • Free isn’t free (someone had to pay for it).
    • Freedom isn’t unlimited choices (it is learning to live within the boundaries).
    When we place our faith in Christ, it literally changes us! The Bible tells us that it makes us a NEW CREATION! (2 Corinthians 5:17) We are changed from the inside out! He changes our desires, he changes our wants, he changes our passions... He changes us!!! He sets us free
    to experience freedom in Him! Listen in as we explore Godly freedom further...

    Series: Plus Nothing

    Grace... it's an often misunderstood word, but something we ALL would like more of. In fact, the idea of grace is so totally unbelievable that people often try to add things to it or take away from it. Once you add or take away though, it's no longer pure & true any longer. Listen in as we explore the idea of "The True Gospel"...
