“May your ways be known throughout the earth, Your saving power among people everywhere.” ~ Psalm 67:2
Faith Promise is the primary source of funds for partnering with the many ministries and missionaries that Westminster supports as a congregation. We gather these commitments in the first quarter of the year during our Annual Missions Conference. That said, you’re welcome to complete a Faith Promise at anytime throughout the year. The following FAQ’s are intended to help you as you consider how God would have your respond to the cause of world missions through our church.
What is a Faith Promise?
My trusting God to enable me to give more than I thought I could give, and at the same time meet all my needs because He has promised me to do so.
What is the Biblical basis for it?
2 Corinthians 8 and 9; 1 Chronicles 29:14,16; Luke 6:38; Malachi 3:10; Psalm 37:5; 2 Chronicles 9:6
What does it entail?
Faith Promise requires a commitment. I commit myself to a specific amount of money, and, by faith based on God’s promises, expect Him to enable me to do it. This helps me to reprogram my whole life priority system so that I begin actively looking for God’s provision.
Who is called to participate?
God’s Word instructs all believers to go and reach. Pray that every family at Westminster would be involved.
How is a faith promise supplied?
From the experience of many individuals and churches, there are three general ways God uses to supply a faith promise.
- Some dramatic, unexpected occurrence
- Reordering our priorities, in order to save money and then giving those monies as a faith promise
- Creative ways to generate income to give
How do I make a Faith Promise?
- Pray – for what the Lord would have me do and know that what He commands He also enables.
- Commit – myself to make a faith promise, realizing that my faith will grow as I stay committed to that promise.
- Give—faithfully as God enables me.
