ministry investment

Giving together.

We believe God provides for His people, and His people faithfully provide for the work He's called us to do together.

We hope it's easy to see that every dollar you give empowers us to share the gospel as we help people...together.

Church members, 13 years of age or older, who have attended anywhere we take attendance or given any amount in the past six months are invited to vote on the 2023 budget proposal.

Guiding principles.

We will spend less than we receive.
We will not go into debt.
Every expense must be approved by at least two people.
Finance Team members are elected volunteers who monitor our expenses.
We conduct an outside, independent audit every two years.

One church. One mission.

God has entrusted us with three locations in two languages and an online campus. As we love all people to Christ, we must be faithful to share the gospel, make disciples, send out missionaries, and help people.

In 2023, we believe God will provide through us at least $3,255,000 for our work together. Here's how those dollars will bring theMission to life!

An example to follow.

The church gives away at least 10% of everything we receive. Through the Cooperative Program, we partner with like-minded organizations like the International Mission Board, the North American Mission Board, Oklahoma Baptists, and the Tulsa Metro Baptist Network.

We support individuals around the world and use some of these funds to raise up the next generation of missionaries.

In 2023, we'll give away at least $325,000.

People make it happen.

A church budget will only ever pay for three things.
1. The resources that make ministry nice.
2. The assistance that makes ministry affordable or helpful.
3. The people that make ministry happen.
Our Personnel Budget represents the salary and benefits for 27 people who serve our community with full-time or continuous part-time responsibilities.

In 2023, we'll invest $1,654,232 in these families.

The things we do.

You experience it every Sunday and throughout the week.
We connect with church members and our community in Worship Services, Groups, Student, Kid, and Preschool Ministries, special events like camps, Passion Week, A Christmas Carol, and so much more! These dollars make every event more affordable. They provide resources and assistance, as well as training for future ministry leaders, and conveniences like childcare. 

In 2023, we'll create unforgettable possibilities by investing $349,350 in these experiences.

A place to call home.

The people are the church. God has blessed us with three locations on 34 acres representing more than 160,000 sqft. used almost every day to serve people. God has also entrusted us with an online home and incredible tools that magnify our ministry together every time we meet.

In 2023, we'll support every ministry of the church by investing $925,916 in the environment where ministry happens.

Together, this totals nearly $300,000  invested in our community to provide hope, relationships, and support for our neighbors. We call this an investment because our community gets more out of it than we give to it. These donations create nearly $800,000 in actual care for families.
