"The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love."-Galatians 5:6
Our faith is why we do what we do.
We believe that genuine faith in Jesus expresses itself as unconditional love for others. We stop to love the one in front of us through food, prayer, emotional support, and a helping hand.
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’...And... ‘Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37 & 39
Giving Tree Global began in 2013 with love and prayer that led to a donated bag of leftover bagels from a bagel store owner as gratitude to our co-founder, Pastor Pasquale Falco. Giving Tree Global holds to the founders' unwavering commitment to love everyone well. We are committed to living a tangible response to those commandments that Jesus called greatest: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength,” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” This love expresses itself in concrete ways; by feeding the hungry, praying for the sick, and providing for those in need. For us, this service is an act of worship.
1. Faith: We believe that we can have a real relationship with God through Jesus. This relationship enables us to love Him and love one another for God is love.
2. Dependence: We are totally dependent on God for everything including provision. We expect miracles of all kinds to sustain us and confirm the Gospel and give hope.
3. God's love transforms: For us, success is about seeing lives transformed through the love of God.
4. Humility: We believe that the sign of true faith in Jesus is humility. Therefore, we endeavor to honor others with our words and our actions.
