To make and deploy mature and equipped followers of Christ
for the sake of family, community and global transformation
In order to accomplish our vision, two things must be in place: People and Resources.
People: The church needs its people to Lean Forward and Flap. This is our way of saying take a step out in faith to do something … anything … that helps move Perimeter’s vision forward.
Resources: The church also needs the resources to be able to fund the people and programs that help make our vision a reality — and ensure that we are stewarding well the campus and facilities that God has so richly blessed us with.
A vision that is never resourced is only a dream.
ALL IN is Perimeter’s initiative to ensure that everything we do — from the everyday to the above-and-beyond — is planned for and resourced through one fund. We don’t separate out the “regular” budget and the “capital campaign” budget.
It’s ALL IN ... ALL together ... in ONE fund.
Everything gets resourced, by everyone, through ALL IN.
1. God designed us to be givers, promising blessing in righteousness.
He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every say, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God. (2 Corinthians 9:10-12, ESV)
2. He also made it clear that the widow’s mite has as much eternal IMPACT as the rich man’s gift.
Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.” (Luke 21: 1-4, ESV)
3. Finally, giving specifically to the local church - the place where God dwells with us and we dwell with one another - is part of God's plan.
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, said the Lord of hosts. Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3: 10-12, ESV)
