Stewardship is an essential part of our Christian faith. It is an outward expression of an inner consecration and conviction. This conviction is manifested in five principles that effectively join the individual believer to the greater assembly of believers. Jesus asked those who found faith in Him to give of themselves to the church in five ways; Temple, Testimony, Talent, Treasure and Time. These contributions on the part of a consecrated individual are useful to the corporate church in maintaining the assembly and also make it possible to move the gospel commission forward to the world.
