“Excelling in Acts of Grace…Advancing the Work of the Gospel”
Acts of Grace
The gospel allures our hearts to support the work of the gospel. In 2 Corinthians 8:1-9:15, the Apostle Paul teaches that a giving heart is created and sustained only by God’s undeserved giving of Jesus Christ to sinners as proclaimed in the gospel.
Paul depicts financial giving as an act of grace. He urges believers to excel in acts of grace (2 Cor. 8:7) in order to advance the work of the gospel.
Sacrificial, joyful, generous giving is a chief implication of the gospel being the gospel (2 Cor. 8:2; 2 Cor. 9:7). Generous giving is the overflow of a heart allured and won by grace. It is not forced by guilt, fear or selfish desire for reward (2 Cor. 8:8-10; 2 Cor. 9:7). Only the gospel causes a heart to overflow in a wealth of eager, cheerful generosity towards others (2 Cor. 8:2-5).
Like Paul to the Corinthians, we invite you to support Paramount Church in order to advance the gospel (2 Cor. 9:10-15). Our collection is an integral part of the ministry of the gospel. Your generosity will not only supply the needs of the saints but also overflowing in many thanksgivings to the glory of God (2 Cor. 9:12-13)!
A Special Note
If you are not a member of Paramount Church but have found our church to be a gospel blessing and thus feel led to support our work in addition to your own local church, we are thankful for your support.
If you are not a Christian and are thinking about visiting Paramount Church or the Christianity Explored course, be assured that we will never ask or pressure you to give anything. We do not want your money. We want you to come to know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, who though being rich for your sake became poor so that you by his poverty might become rich (2 Cor. 8:9).
