Whether you have already invested in Biola or are considering investing, we think it’s important you know our philosophy of biblical stewardship.
God has provided us with all of our time, wealth, possessions, abilities and resources. He owns everything. These resources are His gifts to us, which He will use to accomplish wonderful things for His Kingdom. (1 Chronicles 29:14)
Since God owns everything, we are called to be managers or stewards of all that God entrusts to them, to honor and glorify Him. (1 Pt. 4:10, Lk. 16)
Giving is a worshipful, obedient act of returning to God from what He has provided. (Philippians 4:17-18)
From God’s Kingdom view, our giving becomes a tool to further God’s work on earth. (Lk. 12:34, 1 Tim. 6:17-19)
While faithful stewardship is our responsibility, God desires that our giving would come from a heart motivated by joy. Our desire is to encourage people in their journey of stewardship, that they might discover or continue in the joy of giving. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
As we build relationships with you we will:
