Putting God First - Promise

Adventists recognize that God claims 10 percent (10%) of our income as His own, and so we faithfully return His tithe to the “storehouse” (Mal. 3:10). After tithing, we give offerings according to our blessings and generosity (2 Cor. 7:6-8). There is indication in the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy that regularity and proportionality are good principles to follow. We are, therefore, encouraged that our offerings be a regular percentage of our income. We call this kind of giving a “PROMISE.” Giving to those in need or to other projects may take place in addition to this. In this way, God has led us to fund the global mission of the church.

Commitment Card - Promise

The “Promise” card is a key resource that could be used during a special stewardship program or training event to help members and leaders commit to putting God first in their lives. It can also be used at revival events to call believers to commit to putting “God First” in every area of their lives. There are several categories of commitment that include spiritual, physical, and financial stewardship. The cards can be collected and the members prayed for, or they can be kept by the individual “Promisor” as a reminder. They can be placed in their Bibles.
