It is a long held conviction of The Free Methodist Church that the Lord’s work should be supported by the tithes, offerings and gifts of his people
Other methods of fundraising may only be used provided that:
- they are not a substitute for the giving of tithes and offerings;
- they are consistent with the ethics and practices of our faith;
- the church does not become a marketing agency for commercial products.
(The Manual Chapter 3: 360)
