What is Faith Promise?
Faith Promise is one of the most meaningful methods of supporting missions. It is not a pledge.
A Faith Promise is exactly what it says … a promise made in faith between an individual and God. That promise is based on what the giver believes God wants him or her to give to ministries (missions) beyond those of the local church. Giving through Faith Promise is an adventure and opportunity to allow God to show how He can provide when we open our hearts and pocket-books to do generous things for His Kingdom.
Most people arrive at their Faith Promise amount following time in prayer and Bible study. By listening to the voice of God, we learn what the Holy Spirit wants to do through us to support the mission ministries of our church.
