Thanks for your interest in giving to further God's kingdom through the work being done at Island ECC. You may be aware that each year 25% of our budget goes to serve efforts beyond the walls of 633 King's Road in Hong Kong. We are committed to missions and we have consistently given in a way that reflects that purpose.
A phrase you'll hear us use around here is "you get more of that which you promote." We believe that not only does God bless our efforts to fund short-term and long-term missions through this kind of sacrificial giving, we believe he'll convict more people to venture out into the mission field themselves. What happens after that is only limited by our dreams and God's grace.
