“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” – ACTS 20:35
Prism Church exists to Revive Believers, Reach Friends and Renew Culture for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Prism Church believes we exist to be a physical embodiment of Jesus Christ in our local community, our country and the world. We are called the “Body of Christ” because we are the incarnation of His presence on this earth. The world sees Him in us as we work to RENEW CULTURE.
To make the long-term impact that our church desires to make, we’ve determined that Prism must be radically sacrificial in our giving to Missions & Mercy. We take very seriously the words of Jesus that there is more joy and blessing in giving than receiving. We love joy, and it is for our joy and His glory that we are called to give, give and give some more.
To that end, from the inception of Prism Church, our leadership has declared that as our church budget grew in size, the percentage of our budget earmarked for Missions & Mercy would also grow. Currently we give 17.5% of our annual budget, which ticks up 2.5% for each increase of $50,000, cumulating in a 50/50 split between our General Fund & Missions if/when our annual church budget reaches $1,000,000.
This Missions & Mercy budget will be used for everything from local mercy ministries to international church planting to internal church benevolence for Prism’s people who are in need. These resources will also comprehensively meet the needs of missionaries – generously funding overseas church plants so they wouldn’t have to be distracted with raising money here in America while they serve around the world.
For this to work, Prism’s staff will need to be consummate team builders and equippers of our church body. Why? Because we won’t have endless resources to hire more staff. Prism’s people will have to do much of the local ministry so we can all experience more joy. This ridiculous giving of our time, talent and treasure is part of God’s plan to RENEW CULTURE.
