The Great Commission
Until the return of Christ, it is the Christian's duty and privilege to seek the fulfillment of
Christ's Great Commission and to minister in His name to a lost and dying world. We are to
be instruments of Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit ministers redemption and reconciliation
in the world. (Matthew 25:31-46; 28:18-20)
At Western Hills Baptist Church we carry out the Great Commission primarily through our
Faith Promise Giving.
Faith Promise is...
" Giving the Lord an opportunity to work in our lives to bring about greater support of
" Saying, "In dependence on God I will endeavor to give $_________ (specific amount).
" Scriptural in focus: Its target is the church's God-given task to make disciples of all
" A Scriptural means of encouraging weekly, disciplined, consistent giving for world
" An extra gift which you would not be able to give apart from trusting God to provide it.
According to the Bible a Faith Promise is an amount:
" more than one can afford (II Cor 8:2-4)
" that follows personal commitment (II Cor 8:5)
" that is optional, but is a test of love (II Cor 8:8)
" previously promised (II Cor 9:5)
" personally purposed (II Cor 9:7)
" that you can give cheerfully (II Cor 9:7)
" provided by God (II Cor 9:8)
