The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:6-7

The New Testament teaches us to give generously, regularly and joyfully. At City Light there are two main areas to which you can give financially reflecting the Biblical call for Christians support the local church and its mission to the local area as well as the call to engage with mission work more widely and to have a heart of compassion towards issues of justice and mercy.
