Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won't you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, saying,This person began to build and wasn't able to finish. Luke 14:28-30
Like all organizations, churches have certain bills and obligations that must be paid: utilities, mortgage, mission's commitments, vehicle payments, staff payroll, insurance, and so on. As with all other areas of financial management, churches must be extra cautious when paying bills and obligations to ensure that integrity is maintained and that they remain above suspicion. The CHURCH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CIMS) is designed to provide state-of-the-art automated reporting support for administrative work performed by a church in the performance of its daily operations.
