Giving at PBC
Biblical principles, including those applied from Paul’s second letter to the church at Corinth (chapters 8-9), guide PBC’s view on giving. Stewardship of money and other resources recognizes that our gracious God is the provider of all that we have. Each of us has the privilege and responsibility to give as God has provided. Those who are committed to Jesus Christ as Lord are asked to prayerfully consider the needs of the church body of which they are a part and give as the Lord himself directs: thankfully, generously, cheerfully. PBC applies the principle that righteous giving is a matter between the individual and the Lord (Matthew 6:1-4).
We maintain only minimum required records. Knowledge of contributors and amounts given is limited to those who issue receipts. We believe the Lord himself is the head of this church. We intend to openly and fairly communicate PBC’s financial needs as we understand them and trust the Lord to supply those needs.
