Thank you for your generosity in desiring to support the ministry of Discovery. Your gifts help make it possible for the teaching of God's Word to go on here and through our ministries around the world. All we have is because of God's grace. Therefore, God requires us to be faithful and disciplined in the use of our finances so as not to overspend our needs due to greed. We are to use our material blessings wisely for the support of our families (I Tim. 5:8), the advance of the Kingdom of God (Proverbs 3:9), and to pay our taxes for the support of civil government (Rom. 13).
Because Christ gave His all for us, we also desire to give back in worship. He willingly came to earth to die for our sin that any who might repent and believe in Him may have full and complete forgiveness and eternal life. Worship is our first priority as is clear in the first commandment (cf. Ex. 20). Giving is an act of worship and thanksgiving to God for His many blessings to us.
Giving should be in service to the Lord, whether through time and talents or through material blessings. The New Testament teaches that giving materially is a matter of the heart, free will, sacrificial, individually determined, proportional and systematic (cf. I Cor. 16:1-2; 2 Cor. 8:1-3; 9:6-8; 1 Tim. 6:17-19). A more complete list of Scriptures relating to giving is available upon request.
Discovery is a non-profit organiaztion that exists solely on the freewill gifts of God's people. In some cases you may double the impact of your support through your employer who may match your gifts to our outreach. Giving may also be done through stocks or securities or by remembering Discovery in your estate planning.
Ways to give include: 1) the giving box in the back of our sanctuary during service times, 2) by mailing gifts to Discovery Baptist Church, 4902 Gustafson Dr. NW, Gig Harbor, WA. 98335 or 3) through our secure/private online giving here.
If you've made your gift using your credit card via our secure online server, a receipt will be emailed to you for your records. Also, at the end of the year, if you have provided us a mailing address, you will be mailed a thank-you letter and a record of all gifts you have made for the year for tax purposes as needed. We will also provide an update of what God has been doing and our plans for future ministry.
