We believe that Christian generosity is a joyful response to the gospel.  It is not a dutiful obligation but a cherished privilege.  It does not merit special favor from God but responds to God's favor already received in Christ.  In short, we find the motivation to give exactly where the Apostle Paul found it:  "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor so that you by His poverty might become rich."  (2 Cor. 8:9)

Furthermore, we believe that generosity focused toward the local church is a vital part of our community life together.  Our membership covenant states that we will with God's help "contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations."  Giving is a fundamental activty of BBC members.
