What is FAITH PROMISE? The Church of the Nazarene acknowledges that FAITH PROMISE giving is a biblical method used by many local churches for raising financial support for world evangelization. For our denomination, it is dedicated specifically to the mission support of the Church of the Nazarene through various offerings promoted by Nazarene Missions International (NMI).
FAITH PROMISE is not to be confused with: · A pledge—no one will remind individuals of the exact amount they owe on their FAITH PROMISE giving · The tithe—a FAITH PROMISE is a love gift to God, to be given beyond the tithe · A substitute for mission offerings—In addition to FAITH PROMISE, opportunity should be given for people to give to missions. Such offerings allow those not participating in FAITH PROMISE an opportunity to give to missions; and, for those who are, it provides additional opportunities for giving as the Holy Spirit leads. · A cure-all for a church's financial problems
What does my giving to FAITH PROMISE do? The main priority is reaching the world for Christ through the payment of the World Evangelism Fund.
