Global Generosity Network: The Generosity Declaration

If you are looking for a declaration for your family or ministry to affirm, consider this piece that individuals and organizations are adopting around the world.

The Generosity Declaration

My (Our) commitment to biblical generosity. I (We) affirm that:
• God is indescribably generous. I (We) see this in His creation and experience it in his redemption plan through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
• God is creator, sustainer and owner of all things (Psalm 24:1). He has supplied His infinite resources to me (us) to steward for His Kingdom purposes, including to reach the ends of the earth for the glory of His name (Luke 12:42-48; Revelation 7:9-12).
• Just as Jesus lived a truly and perfectly generous life to serve and save people, it remains fundamental therefore, that Christians model biblical service, generosity and stewardship (Mark 10:45; 1 Corinthians 4:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:8-9).

I (We), therefore, commit myself (ourselves) to foster a culture of biblical generosity and stewardship that will transform individuals and communities as I (we):
• Recognize that generosity is manifested in giving funds, resources, time, talents, gifts, prayer and my (our) very presence.
• Practice holistic stewardship, generous living, and gracious financial giving while encouraging these virtues within my (our) spheres of influence through modeling, teaching and equipping.
• Engage openly with other Christians and their networks in a global movement in which the whole church lives out and takes the whole gospel to the whole world as effective and generous stewards.
