We believe the theological basis for giving is found, most clearly, in the character of God. Throughout all of scripture we find that God continually gave. In Genesis 1, we find God giving us life, giving us breath, giving us relationship, giving us resources, and ultimately giving us everything we need to enjoy Him and His creation.

When we separated ourselves from God as a result of sin (see “The Gospel” for clarification) God gave us the Law and the Prophets for correction, instruction, revelation, and ultimately to set humanity on a path towards redemption. Further more, the Law communicated to humanity that we couldn’t redeem ourselves so God the Father sent His son to die a substitutionary death on the cross in our place. In John 3:16 we read, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” This is the ultimate act of giving.

So in light of this truth, we believe as Christians our mandate is to give not because we have to but because we get to. We give because God gave and we are created in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26). If you would like to give financially to our community you can do so by clicking the secure link below. If you are a member of a church other than Roots, we would ask that your financial gift to our church not replace any normal giving to the community you are a part of. Thank you in advance for your partnership in this way.

Galatians 2:20

"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."

Prayer Support

“…The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
James 5:16

This is by far the most important method of giving to our church. By standing in the gap for us you can expect God to deeply impact our church for His glory. Please pray that we would be a church that is on mission with Christ in this world. Pray that we remain steadfast and passionate about preaching the pure word of God. Pray that Jesus is more popular than any person or program in our church. And please pray for the leadership, that they would have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church. Thank you in advance for all your prayers!

Financial Support

Giving cheerfully and sacrificially of our finances is an integral part of worship. A Christian labors not to gain personal wealth or possessions, but to steward God’s resources well and model Jesus to our friends, family, coworkers, and community.
