What is Faith Promise Missions?
Faith Promise is Calvary’s way of resourcing our church’s mission efforts by supplying funds to missionaries, ministries and mission organizations with whom we partner. Offerings given to Faith Promise should be above your regular offerings and the tithe.
PROMISE indicates a commitment to God, and FAITH means that we are trusting Him to help us fulfill that commitment throughout the year. Although your giving does make it possible for our church to support His work around the world through the missionaries and organizations we support, your promise is solely between you and the Lord. No one will ever come to you to ask for payment - but because the work is His and is so important, we encourage you to make your commitment prayerfully and follow through by giving faithfully.
Our Faith Promise budget is determined by what GOD wants to accomplish through us - not by what WE think we can or might be able to reasonably give on our own. It is a stretch that extends us beyond our own ability as we obediently wait on the Lord to provide.
The Faith Promise budget at Calvary is separate from our general operating budget. It is determined by the Faith Promise commitments of individuals and families within our church, requests for support, and the vision God has given us as a church for the upcoming year. Your Faith Promise giving directly impacts the specific amounts of support we are able to commit to missionaries and missions organizations each year, and also enables us to better plan what we will do as a church (mission trips, local projects, etc.) Every year Calvary-based projects give many of our own church members the opportunity to be involved in hands-on mission efforts both here at home and around the world - perhaps for the first time ever!
