IN Network News

Australia is the only supply line country in the International Needs Network that is obliged to separate its ministry and development activities because monetary gifts to ministry are largely not tax-deductible here.

Philanthropic giving to ministry projects has historically been much lower than giving to the sustainable development projects of International Needs and so church planting, for example, does not receive the same level of financial support from Australia as from other supply line countries in the Network.

What sets IN Network apart from many similar organisations is that our mission actively promotes spreading the good news and bringing people to God. If tax deductibility is not a consideration for you and you are moved to help us reach people in God's name with His word, we would welcome your financial and/or prayerful support. Remember the words of Jesus in the parable of the lost coin - "In the same way, I tell you, the angels of God rejoice over one sinner who repents." Luke 15: 10

Go and Make Disciples

IN Network Australia relies on philanthropic giving from various sources to implement and sustain ministry projects. It is a highly competitve area in the not-for-profit sector with organisations actively seeking financial support and every dollar raised is hard fought for.

Since monetary gifts to ministry are not tax-deductible in Australia, these gifts are truly sacrificial in nature as there is no return for the giver. Liken it to the poor widow in Luke 21:1-4 who gave all she had to live on. The value of her gift exceeded that of those living abundantly. Since it is quite difficult to attract gifts to ministry, we rely on the goodness and generosity of people who do not seek tax deductibility in their giving.

IN Network seeks to honour God in taking the good news to the poor and disadvantaged. We hear the cry of the poor and share our bread with them.

We encourage you to financially support the good works of this non-profit organisation in its service to God. "The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written,
'he has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.'"  

2 Cor 9: 6-9
