Biblical Stewardship

A way of life rooted in scripture

God calls us to care for all that has been entrusted to us -  the material and spiritual blessings, our community, the earth and environment, our relationships and ourselves.

We celebrate biblical stewardship throughout the year.  Basilica ministries are a guide to making stewardship part of daily life.  Join us as we explore six aspects of biblical stewardship: 

Global:  Promote peace throughout the world
Local:  Create bridges between communities and advocate for those in need
Ecological:  Leave the world a better place for future generations 
Personal:  Care for ourselves in body, mind and spirit 
Gifts:  Share our knowledge, talent, love and experience to serve others
Financial:  Give generously and joyfully

I believe in the gifts of God.
I am grateful for all I have been given.
These gifts are not mine to have, but mine to share.
When they are shared, my gifts will make a difference for others.
I believe that the act of giving is more important than the gift itself.
I will make giving a priority.
I will give to others because so much of what I have comes from others.
I give of who I am, what I do, and what I have.
To my family, my faith, and my community, I will give of myself.
As Christ gave so much for so many, so I will give to you.
And, I will be thankful for the opportunity to give.
