F.A.Q.

1. What is the Combined Kingdom Campaign?
It is a biblical stewardship plan of partnering with God for the benefit of the Kingdom. It enables the people of God to unite together
in an effort to maximize the church’s potential by giving sacrificially. This great sacrifice can be summed up in 1 Chronicles 29:2-5.
It states,”With all my resources I have provided for the temple of my God…Besides, in my devotion to the temple of my God I now give my
personal treasures…over and above everything I have provided for this holy temple…”

2. When is the Combined Kingdom Campaign kick -off date?
February 24, 2008.

3. Who will participate in the Combined Kingdom Campaign?
In the book of Acts 2:44-45 states, “All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods,
they gave to anyone as he had need.” The call for participation is from the smallest to the greatest.

4. Why is the Child Development Center the most important goal?
We believe the CKC is strategically important because it will enhance our children’s development spiritually, intellectually, and physically.

5. Is this Campaign just about raising money?
Heavens no! It is about raising the people of God to a place of joining with God to do the work of the Kingdom. God gives us
resources, talents, gifts, and abilities that we might serve others. James 1:17, I Peter 4:10.

6. What is the ultimate financial goal of the Combined Kingdom Campaign?
The goal is $1.2 million dollars in 3 years.

7. Is any amount too small to contribute?
Our wonderful motto is, “Not Equal Gifts But Equal Sacrifice”. We welcome everyone’s contributions to the ministry.

8. I pay tithes and give liberal offerings. This is the way God says His church should be maintained.
Why isn’t that enough?
Of course it is enough! I applaud those who have been faithful to tithe as the Lord requires. However because the percentage
of tithes are below 17% and if the church is to have a meaningful impact, the burden falls upon the faithful. But,
stewardship is a wonderful expression of our faith. And, “freely you have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:8 Whatever is given
to the Kingdom is sown in good ground. And, God remembers your seed by blessing in proportion of your giving.
2 Corinthians 9:6, “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall
reap also bountifully.”

9. What does building more buildings have to do with God’s command to the church?
Where much is given, much is required. Ministry is broad in scope and it encompasses meeting the needs not only spiritually,
but our desire is to meet the needs in what we consider the wholeness principle. That would suggest, facilities that reach beyond
the walls of the church, and into the community by providing social, economical, physical, mental, financial, and political well
being programs.

10. If I pledge and my circumstances change, will I be able to adjust or cancel my pledge?
Of course! All one needs to do is contact the office that situations have changed and there is a need to adjust. However, we
believe that once you make a sincere pledge to the Kingdom, the Lord is faithful to perform it! He does say prove me, Malachi 3:10.

11. Why are we asking the children to be part of this stewardship effort, and they don’t have jobs?
To include the children gives a wonderful opportunity to have them not only see, but become an active part in the ministry ofkingdom
building. Moreover, they will feel like they are a part of the process and this lesson will lead them into the spirit of what
it means to give.

12. What other vision/goals do the church have with Combined Kingdom Campaign?
The hope is that the Combined Kingdom Campaign would be a motivator that inspires the people of God to see God’s magnificent
plan for how blessed one is who participates with Him. As a result, this would become a way of life to give freely to His Kingdom.

13. How often will contributions be reported to the congregation?
