“The church is not a club but a living body, composed of all persons who have been made alive in God through Jesus Christ.” “We do not charge people; membership dues” but “must depend on the contributions of our members to meet” operational expenses.
“People are often moved to give to the church out of a sense of responsibility. Paul insists that we should not give ‘reluctantly or under compulsion’ (2 Corinthians 9:7) … but because we believe we should, not because someone else thinks we should.”
