Giving

Your giving makes an impact for God’s kingdom in our city, country, and around the world. Jesus Christ paid it all for us, through His death and resurrection, and we are to give, from what he has blessed us with, freely, generously, sacrificially, and cheerfully to further His name. Giving is not something we have to do, it’s something we get to do. It is an honor and a privilege to steward all that God has entrusted to us, so we’ve made it as easy and convenient as possible for you to financially support His mission.

Amplify Your Gift

Because of the 2020 CARES Act:

  1. You can take a charitable deduction against up to 100% of your 2020 adjusted gross income for federal tax purposes.
  2. You can advance your 2021 giving before December 31 due to the CARES Act, allowing for a cash charitable contribution to erase up to 100% of your adjusted gross income. This is the first time since 2005 the IRS has allowed this.
  3. You can claim an additional “above-the-line” deduction for charitable gifts made in cash of up to $300. If you are not itemizing on your 2020 taxes, you can claim this new deduction.

More traditional year-end options for giving available this year:

  1. IRA Rollover. If you’re 70-1/2 or older, you and your spouse can each give up to $100,000 from your respective IRAs with no tax penalties and without adding a single penny to your taxable income. And you get an income deduction for your charitable gift whether or not you itemize your taxes. It’s a great way to make a significant contribution and take advantage of tax saving strategies.
  2. Appreciated stocks or property. Not only will this type of gift generate a tax deduction, but you can also save significantly on capital gains taxes, too! Through a partnership with the National Christian Foundation, we can also receive complex assets, such as privately held stock, that can provide powerful tax saving strategies.
  3. Cash gift. Any generous donation you give — when dated and postmarked or given online by midnight December 31 — may apply toward this year’s taxes.

Why We Give

FAQ

"The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it..." (Psalm 24:1)
As Christians, we believe that we are stewards of God's resources because He is the owner of all that we have. Throughout scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. His Word tells us that giving is an act of worship that should be done with a spirit of thanksgiving.
Anyone can give, but as believers in Christ we are called to give to further His kingdom. God gave us life through his son, Jesus Christ, and we respond with generous, sacrificial, and cheerful hearts in all aspects of life, including finances.
