Why We Give
We believe that the Bible is the ultimate source of truth guiding the way we live as Christ followers. The Bible tells us that giving is an act of worship and obedience that honors and glorifies God.
As an Act of Worship
Through the Bible, God tells us to give regularly, generously and sacrificially and to give out of all that He gives us as part of our worship of Him.
Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops. | Proverbs 3:9
As an Act of Obedience
God doesn’t need what we have but what we do with what we have directs our heart. Giving to God reminds us that everything we have comes from Him and we can trust Him to meet our needs. The Church is God’s plan, through Jesus, to bring healing, support and encouragement to one another. We give to advance the ‘big C’ Church through Jesus’ ministry.
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. | Malachi 3:10

Where the Money Goes
When you give to Hope, you can chose which fund your gift goes to. Here’s a little more info about what each fund does.
Consistent giving provides funding stability so we can continue to serve our local community and support our local partners. General Ministry giving does much more than keep the lights on at our campuses, it funds all our ministry efforts for kids, adults, and our local outreach and global mission partners.
Hope Where You Are
Our vision is to reach 100,000 people with the hope of Jesus in the next five years. Hope Where You Are is our plan to better position ourselves to love people where they are by expanding our reach throughout the Triangle. Through Hope Where You Are, we built our Apex campus, launched a new campus in Garner and are currently revitalizing our Raleigh campus to host additional ministry outreach opportunities throughout the week.
Check out our Hope Where You Are page for details on specific projects that Hope Where You Are giving will support in the future. We are currently not raising funds for Hope Where You Are but will relaunch that initiative in Fall 2023.
Make Your Money Count
Online giving processing fees add up when multiplied by large amounts and over hundreds of gifts a month. You can make your money count by selecting the online giving option with the lowest possible fee. (We recommend Bank draft with a fee of only 1% of your total gift.)
