What is Faith Promise?
Faith promise is a commitment to God to give a specific amount monthly/weekly to the foreign missions offering at your local church.
"…Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over…. "
There are three dimensions to the Faith Promise commitment:
1. Stewardship- Giving from the fruit of material blessings the Lord has entrusted to you
2. Sacrifice- Giving that goes beyond your comfort zone
3. Faith- Giving that goes beyond your ability and requires faith in God to supply.
Why do we have Faith Promise?
The great commission given to the Church was to “..go and share the good news…” Every believer has a personal responsibility to fulfil this call whether it is through action or deed.
The Local Church, through financial giving as well as material donations enable the department of Overseas Missions to carry on an effective ministry in their current fields.
The program Faith Promise is the financial arm the UPCA Overseas Missions Department has created to involve each and every member of our Australian Body in fulfilling the great commission.
