WHY GIVE?

One of the characteristics of a Christian is that we reflect God’s extravagant generosity; that we have hearts that ask how much we can give, rather than how little. Giving can be costly, but whatever stage of life you’re at, Jesus tells us ‘it is more blessed to give than to receive.’

We teach the biblical principle of stewardship. Everything we have belongs to God, and we’re only looking after what He’s given us. Many people at Gateway give generously and regularly, something we’re extremely grateful for because faith-filled giving enables the disadvantaged to be cared for, the gospel to be preached, and our family to be strengthened.

It’s with this in mind that we encourage people to give generously in proportion to income, prayerfully considering their giving to see if they can take another step:

We know that your personal circumstances will affect how you are able to give. You should never feel under any obligation to give – only give out of what you have.
