One word the Bible uses for Christians is “steward”. A steward is a person who manages something that belongs to someone else, in accordance with the owner’s will.

Christians are to steward the gospel message (1 Corinthians 4:1-2) as well as their own talents and gifts (1 Peter 4:10). The Bible tells us, “You are not your own, for you were bought with a price,” the price of God’s own Son (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 8:32).

In recognizing this, we see that nothing we have is ours, but all belongs to Christ. Therefore, we are stewards of the financial resources God has entrusted to each of us.

At South Durham Church, we desire to help every disciple grow in his or her understanding of the theology of money and practical ways of stewarding financial resources well.

Common Questions About Giving

  • Generous, cheerful giving, done in faith, increases our faith, our joy, and our righteousness. Jesus taught, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21).

    Giving back to God from what He has given us moves our heart toward Him and His mission in the world. In doing so, we “lay up for [ourselves] treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal” (Matthew 6:20).

    We are constantly tempted to worship money. In it, we look for security, peace, and hope. Generous financial giving to God’s church helps to free us from idolatry and fix our eyes on Christ.
