Since the beginning of the church about 2,000 years ago, collections have been taken to finance the ministries of churches including outreach ministries and service to the poor (Acts 2:42-47). Even certain women that were convinced Jesus was God’s anointed messiah financed the ministry of Jesus and His disciples (Luke 8:1-3).
We say this up front to let you know for these reasons and others we do not feel it inappropriate to raise funds from people that call Jesus God and King. We will not seek in any way to raise money from those who do not believe in the ministry of Agapé Chicago.
So rest assured if you are visiting our site and are unfamiliar with our church that we are not seeking to get wealthy, but rather to provide for our ministry leaders, to pay for meeting space, and to reach out to the community. Thus we provide multiple options for receiving gifts from those who are convinced our work is worthwhile. In a time where many people pay bills and shop online, we felt it wise to offer supporters an online giving option. That is why this donation page is here.
Before You Give
If you decide to financially support us we want to provide a reminder. As the apostle Paul encouraged Christians that Jesus became poor that they might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:8-9), so we remind you before you give that your giving should be done in response to Jesus’ lavish grace extended to you. If you give to Agapé Chicago, do so in response to the riches Jesus died to give you through forgiveness of sins. Please don’t give out of guilt or compulsion!
