We believe the church is a direct link to impacting our local community; to inspire, bring hope and create positive life-giving change in every avenue of our city and cities across the world. The First Fruits offering is your opportunity to give extravagantly. This annual offering gives you a chance to sow into the church in a way that will accelerate the vision of the house to see God’s will done right here in our city first, then onto other cities all over the world.
You can give your First Fruits offering starting on January 1st, continuing throughout the month.
- The First Fruit offering is a principle all through the bible. Proverbs 3:9, "Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine."

Abel gave the very first of his harvest, it pleases the Lord when you choose to give back the best of what He has given to you. It's an act of gratitude and expression of faith that says, "Lord, since you have provided the first, I trust you will take care of me and provide the rest" (Genesis 4:4).
Pray: The aim of First Fruits is to put God first in every aspect of our lives, including our finances. We encourage everyone to go before God and ask Him how you should plan to give.
Plan: We recognize the First Fruit offering is a great sacrifice and a leap of faith for most, but this is why it's so important to count the cost and make a plan. Creating a budget for December 2022 to January 2023 is a good way to start. Typically, the First Fruit offering is considered to be the first paycheck of the year. But remember, this is all about giving your best to God. Your best might be the pay of your first hour, first day, first week, or a different amount that God puts on your heart.
Give: Once you know that amount you're giving, take the leap of faith! We have a few giving options you can choose from below.
