Like most other organizations, churches need financial income to accomplish their work. Knowing this, God has authorized churches to raise funds by taking up collections from the members (1 Cor. 16:1,2; 2 Cor. 8 & 9; Acts 4:32-5:11; 11:27-30; 2:44,45).
The purpose of this study is to examine what the Bible says about the Christian's responsibility to support the work of the church financially.
