OUR LOVE FOR GOD IS TESTED BY THE QUESTION OF WHETHER WE SEEK HIM OR HIS GIFTS
WHAT IS STEWARDSHIP?
Stewardship is based in the belief that God, at creation, established human beings as the caretakers of creation. Stewardship acknowledge God’s lordship and surrender every area of life to Him. Discipleship — moving the entire life towards God — takes place under the guidance of the Holy Spirit as He recreates the believer in the image of God. Faithful stewardship5 is the Christian lifestyle, and the joyful result of a personal relationship of assurance in Jesus Christ.
THE MISSION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF STEWARDSHIP IS TO EMPHASIZE THE LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST, TO ENHANCE THE INTEGRATION OF THE GOSPEL INTO THE CHRISTIAN LIFESTYLE, TO ENCOURAGE FAITHFUL STEWARDSHIP, AND TO FACILITATE THE INDIVIDUAL, CORPORATE AND LEADERSHIP DIMENSIONS OF STEWARDSHIP
AS PARTNERSHIP WITH GOD.
A disciple is one who walks with, learns from, and lives in submission to a master in order to become like the master.
Stewardship described through discipleship is, therefore, the lifestyle of one who has a living relationship with Jesus Christ, accepts His lordship, walks with God, and works in partnership with Him, acting as His agent to manage His affairs on earth.
