But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him (1 John 3:17)?
So also faith by itself, if it does not have works , is dead (James 2:17).
Saving faith is a reality that gives rise to love. So faith without love is dead or nonexistent because love is the very essence of the works that demonstrate a living faith. A pithy way to say it is: our faith is invisible, but our love is always visible.
Why Give Here?
To Be Strategic And
Generous In Loving Others
You desire and want to be a part of something much bigger than yourself!!!! God's heart is global! Connecting your charitable gifts with Heart In Heaven allows you to maximize your giving capacity. It enables you to become a positive force for genuine transformation—to be a part of what God is doing in developing countries through various upstanding organizations working amongst the poor and lost to effect sustainable change.
Do all your giving in just one place.
All organizations on the platform receive your financial support! Heart In Heaven provides built-in equity to fund all organizations on the platform, empowering them to more effectively carry out their mission. Instead of contributing to only two or three organizations each month, you would spread your giving to all the organizations on the platform; each and every organization—and the people they support—would equally benefit from your monthly financial gift.
For example, HIH investor Marie will no longer be helping only Mercy Ships (floating hospitals providing life-transforming surgeries), the single organization she faithfully supports on a monthly basis. Rather, Marie will now be helping to support an additional twenty trustworthy Christian organizations. Her monthly giving that otherwise would only have gone to Mercy Ships is now pooled (with all other contributions) and distributed to support all the organizations on the platform. Marie helps to change more lives. Instead of her compassion and generosity targeting only people with physical disfigurements, she’ll also be helping to introduce clean water, reduce human trafficking, bring the Bible to unreached people groups, help those persecuted for their faith, etc. Her small monthly giving will be greatly leveraged, allowing Marie to reach and bless countless more than her individual monthly giving to one specific organization ever could.
This leveraged giving model is powerful and synergistic. Giving as a collective group increases our impact in supporting all vetted organizations on the platform whose purpose is to come alongside the marginalized through missions and discipleship, Bible translation and dissemination, economic empowerment, helping orphans, fighting human trafficking, providing advocacy, etc. We venture to say it's unlikely that a single individual is consistently giving to all of these varied causes. Hence, what would be very difficult to achieve alone, we can now accomplish as an entity. That’s kingdom leverage!!! Similar to crowdfunding, except we'd like to think of it as Kingdomfunding.
Because of the multiple global organizations that are recipients of our monthly giving, each investor would be demonstrating compassion to not only one or two but to ALL categories comprising those whom Jesus referred to as the least of these (Matthew 25:31-46): those who are hungry, thirsty, naked, poor, homeless, sick, and imprisoned.
The global reach and impact that can be achieved with the platform is exponentially greater than could ever be realized with smaller, individual donations.
The overall concept is much like mutual funds, where one invests in a single entity comprised of stocks and bonds from a variety of different companies. Similarly, this is a diversified, leveraged-giving model. Again, by regularly and collectively seeding into a fixed number of Gospelcentric causes, you can touch and change far more lives than you ever could alone.
You are afforded the opportunity to learn, grow in, and practice biblical financial stewardship alongside like-minded others; to have the assurance that you are making a meaningful difference each and every month, regardless of how little or how much you may be able to financially contribute.
You get to participate in a unique and innovative giving mechanism. To the best of our knowledge, the particularities of this concept make it novel and differentiate it from any other organization.
Heart In Heaven is designed to be a scalable model. Our long-term goal is to expand the total number of organizations on the platform, enabling us to eventually touch millions of lives.
We recognize that people tend to be more passionate about certain types of ministries that touch their hearts. As there are many gospel-centric ministries that focus on meeting specific needs (Bible dissemination, water, hunger, human trafficking, etc.), our long-term goal is to provide kingdom investors with the capability to choose—by varying percentages—how they would like to apportion their monthly investments.
