Why We Give:
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life." - John 3:16
"Since you excel in so many ways--you have so much faith, such gifted speakers, such knowledge, such enthusiasm, and such love for us--now I want you to excel also in this gracious ministry of giving..." -2 Corinthians 8:7
Generosity and giving are at the very heart of God and at the center of who God is making us to be. The Scriptures tell us that God wants us to give regularly, generously, and sacrificially out of all He gives us as part of our worship of Him.
We give to God by giving to the church not only because it supports what God is doing in our church and our community, but also because we know that our giving directs our hearts and shapes us in ways that not much else can. Giving to God reminds us that He has given us everything that we have, and can be counted on to meet every need we will ever have. Giving something back to Him is an expression of gratitude and worship.
Steps and Process for Online Giving:
1) Click on the giving page link: You will be redirected to our secure online giving server on another page. (Redemption utilizes a service called Simple Give, which is a secure server/manager for online giving that specializes in Churches and Non-profit organizations.)
2) Enter your personal information, giving amount and information, and choose whether you want to set-up an account or not. By setting up an account you will be able to log in and check your own giving history for tax purposes, create recurring gifts for convenience, and avoid reentering your information everytime you give a gift.
(NOTE: You may give by E-Check (debiting your bank account), Debit Card, or Credit Card. Redemption Church does NOT encourage going into debt to give to the church. Give from what you have, not from what you don't.)
3) Confirm your information and gift and submit. You will then be emailed a receipt and record of your gift- if you set up recurring giving you will be emailed a receipt everytime the gift is made. If you set up an account you will also be able to log in and check your giving history.
Why Online Giving:
We offer online giving because most people now manage their finances and banking online. Online giving creates the opportunity for convenience and consistency in our giving. It also allows us to keep first things first. The scriptures say that giving is to be a "first" and not a leftover matter in our lives. It is easy to let our intentions be compromised by the pressures of expenses and billing cycles.
For your protection, we have taken a number of steps to maximize the security of financial transactions that are accepted on Redemption's website. Bank account processing is accomplished using secure processing services. Your entry of this information is encrypted when transmitted and stored in multiple secure locations separate from our website. Encryption is a process that scrambles information into a format that unauthorized parties can not decode or utilize. 256-bit encryption is the strongest, most secure form of encryption generally utilized in Internet browsers in North America.
The online giving registration form requires you to give us contact information (like your name and e-mail address), and demographic information. Redemption will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. This information is stored in your file in a secure environment separate from our website.
