Many of you have questions about what we do with the core dollars that churches send the National Ministry Centre. Let’s start by explaining what “core” is. Core is our collective way of supporting the Free Methodist family. Just as, in your local church, when individual donations allow the church to do more than what one individual could do on their own – core, when we collective contribute, allows the bigger family to do more together than we could ever do apart. Here are some ways in which your giving and your local church’s giving to core works …
Together we are planting churches
In fact, 25% of our denomination is made up of church plants. Because of your giving we are a growing family.
Together we are helping churches and pastors to become healthy
Because healthy pastors and healthy churches are what attracts people to the kingdom.
Together we are becoming missional
Which simply means not doing church the way we have always done church (because that’s the way it has always been done) but stopping and looking at where God has placed us, who God has given us and then asking what He wants us to do.
Together we are creating a culture of generous stewardship
This is not to fund the church, but to be who God has created us to be. It is not what God wants from us, but what he wants for us that makes generosity so important. Being generous allows us to conform into His image.
Together we are making disciples
Who follow Jesus passionately, continue to grow in maturity and are taking part in restoring God’s intended wholeness everywhere!
