At ACF, we believe that every follower of Christ is called and equipped to reach out to others with the transformational good news of Jesus Christ around the corner and around the world. This calling is carried out in a variety of ways:
This is where the battle is fought and won in the spiritual realm. Nothing of lasting value would happen in and through us without the power of God, and God works through the prayers of His people. When we pray, we participate and cooperate with God in all He is doing around the corner and around the world. If you don’t know how to pray, don’t worry.
Jesus left us a great model:
Our Father in heaven, holy is your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For yous is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever!
Another way to think of this is the ACTS prayer:
- Adoration—tell God how great he is
- Confession—agree with God about our sin
- Thanksgiving—thank God for what he has done
- Supplication—ask God to supply our needs
Although missions and ministry can’t happen without funding, giving is more about the heart of the giver than the projects they fund. By giving, we say to God “Thank you, I trust you, I honor you.”
Christ followers give out of celebration rather than obligation—because they want to, not because they have to.
I Trust You
Giving reminds us that God is in control and that we gladly lay down every part of our lives to Him as Lord. It shows that we know that He is God and we are not.
I Honor You
Giving exalts God as the giver of all good things as we give back to him a portion of his bountiful provision.
