Church-to-Church DonationsTwo Bible Cases - Acts
11 1 Cor. 16 (Rom. 15 2 Cor. 8,9)
  1. SUBJECT - A church needing help to care for its
    needy members (Acts 1128,29 Rom. 1526 2 Cor.
    814 912 Acts 2417)
  2. PURPOSE - To relieve needy members (Acts 1129
    2 Cor. 814 912)
  3. DURATION - Temporary until the receiving church
    could meet its own obligations(2 Cor. 814)
  4. RESULT - Independence and equality of churches (2
    Cor. 814)

Scriptural cooperation gives freedom from
destitution without centralizing supervision,
power, or funds.

Scriptural Cooperation Vs. Sponsoring Elderships
Church needing help for its own members Subject Church able to care for its own members
To relieve needy members in the receiving church Purpose NOT to relieve needy members in the receiving church
Temporary till the church can care for its own obligations Duration Church never intends to finance the work alone.
Independence and equality Result Inter-dependence cen-tralization, inequality
Responsibility for oversight is shifted from the
giving churches to the sponsoring church.This is
the first step to a central church organization.
