Faith Promise Giving

Faith Promise is a way of systematically supporting world evangelism efforts, turning missions giving into something strategic rather than something sporadic.

  • How do I decide how much my Faith Promise should be?
    To decide on a promise amount, we recommend studying scripture, considering prior years' missions gifts, and then asking God to show you the right amount to faithfully purpose to give. (II Corinthians 9:7). Do not be surprised at what God lays on your heart. Just be obedient.
  • What's the relationship between Faith Promise and giving a tithe?
    Faith Promise giving is over and above the tithe. Tithing is a clear scriptural principle, dating back to the earliest pages of Genesis. Tithing recognizes God's ownership over us and all that we have. In practical terms, tithe money runs the local church and its ministries. Faith Promise is a way for us give specifically to reaching the unreached of the world. Faith Promise giving is a tangible expression of our desire that the whole world know the Good News.
  • Is this a pledge and will I be notified of my progress?
    This is a promise to God, not a pledge to the church. Your Faith Promise amount is between you and God. No one will notify you or keep track of your progress toward your commitment.
  • Is Faith Promise the only way I can participate in missions giving?
    Not everyone chooses to give through Faith Promise. At Hope Fellowship, we accept donations to support missions at any time. Gifts made through online giving or tithe envelopes can be designated specifically to go towards global missions.
  • What is Faith Promise?
    Faith Promise is way of systematically supporting world evangelism efforts. Rather than waiting to respond to individual appeals as they come along, believers ask the Lord how much they should give to missions over the next year. They then commit to that annual total as a "Faith Promise." Faith Promise turns missions giving into something strategic rather than something sporadic.
  • How long does my Faith Promise commitment last?
    Faith Promise commitments are made for one year at a time.
  • How do I give the money for my Faith Promise?
    Giving regularly is recommended, so consider breaking down your total Faith Promise amount into a bi-weekly or monthly installment. Some Faith Promises, however, depend on annual, one-time income. These can be paid when those monies are received. Regardless of frequency, gifts can be made through Hope Fellowship's online giving portal and designated as Faith Promise.
  • Is there a scriptural basis for Faith Promise missions giving?
    Faith Promise giving makes us channels of blessing. In His covenant with Abraham, God said that through Abraham's descendants, "all peoples of the earth would be blessed" (Genesis 12:3). Faith Promise giving reflects our personal commitments (II Corinthians 8:5). Though Faith Promise giving is optional, it does clearly demonstrate our love (Philippians 2:1-4, Luke 6:38, Romans 12:9-10).
  • Who should give to Faith Promise?
    Anyone who wants to trust God and who wants to be used by God to get the Good News to the unreached can make a Faith Promise commitment (Luke 6:38, Proverbs 11:24-25). We encourage families to include children in the Faith Promise process because it's crucial to train them in systematic giving and faith living.
