Welcome to the Stewardship Ministry page!
According to the SDA Encyclopedia, to the Christian, stewardship means “man’s responsibility for, and use of, everything entrusted to him by God-life, physical being, time, talents, and abilities, mental possessions, opportunities to be of service to others, and his knowledge of the truth”. And you thought stewardship was just about tithe and offering!
The CPC Stewardship Ministry aims to acknowledge God’s ownership by encouraging proper stewardship of:
- our bodies
- our abilities
- our time
- our material possessions
- the Earth
We are God's stewards, entrusted by Him with time and opportunities, abilities and possessions, and the blessings of the earth and its resources. We are responsible to Him for their proper use. We acknowledge God's ownership by faithful service to Him and our fellow men, and by returning tithes and giving offerings for the proclamation of His gospel and the support and growth of His church. Stewardship is a privilege given to us by God for nurture in love and the victory over selfishness and covetousness. The steward rejoices in the blessings that come to others as a result of his faithfulness. (Gen. 1:26-28; 2:15; 1 Chron. 29:14; Haggai 1:3-11; Mal. 3:8-12; 1 Cor. 9:9-14; Matt. 23:23; 2 Cor. 8:1-15; Rom. 15:26, 27.)
Faithful stewardship of God’s resources promises a personal blessing, a blessing to others, and a blessing to the Church.
