The Department of Stewardship Ministries of the Central Association of Honduras exists with the purpose of helping each believer to identify with Biblical precision what their role is in the process of establishing and consummating the kingdom of Christ. The kingdom of heaven is a treasure; the greatest, and Stewardship Ministries serves the purpose of helping you secure your share and eternal inheritance in that kingdom.
Stewardship was born in the same master mind of our Creator, which is why not only its origin is divine but also its fulfillment; for what must be every day part of the life of the human being and above all of the Adventist Christian. The focus of the Stewardship department should prompt us to think about what the church has called the 4 “T” by trajectory, namely TIME, TEMPLE, TREASURES and TALENTS. Likewise, it should be to motivate all the members of the parish and even the friends of the same, to show their gratitude to the Creator for the kindness, mercies and gifts granted even without deserving them, through their fidelity in the proper use of all the valuable resources they have been assigned to manage.
PHILOSOPHY: Stewardship is the lifestyle of one who accepts the lordship of Christ and forms a partnership with God, acting as his agent in managing his affairs here on earth. In Jesus Christ, God restored the divine-human relationship and reestablished his kingdom on earth. In this way, the gospel provides reconciliation between God and humanity. Christ became the second Adam, regaining again the lost stewardship of humanity. Stewardship today begins with the recognition of God’s sovereignty as Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Owner.
MISSION: Develop the potential of each disciple of Christ in order to ensure the prompt consummation of the kingdom of heaven.
VISION:All that I am and all that I have, offered on the altar of service to Christ.
- Clearly enunciate a biblical vision of stewardship and the integration of the Lordship of Jesus Christ into every area of existence, and invite people to a total surrender of life and all resources and possessions to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
- Develop and present a biblical approach to stewardship, as a lifestyle lived in union and partnership with God.
- Continue the work of education about tithes and offerings, as well as the implementation of the Adventist Financial Support Plan. This will help church members increase understanding of their role in the corporate stewardship of the church as the body of Christ, their financial support through systematic benevolence, and the role of the Holy Spirit in guiding individual giving systems and corporate.
- Develop appropriate concepts and resources to empower members and officers to implement stewardship principles, especially those materials that cannot be produced as economically and efficiently in the union or division office.
