This is a unified mission in which all giving goes toward all ministries, missions, projects, and advancements of the gospel.
What the Bible Teaches About Tithing
Why Do We Give?
The simple answer is we believe everything we have comes from God in the first place. We give because we believe God has entrusted us to be leaders for hope in our church and our community.
What Does "Tithe" Mean?
The Bible teaches that a guideline for giving is called the tithe (Leviticus 27:30). That is giving 10% of what we earn back to God.
What Does "Offering" Mean?
An offering is a gift given to a specific need above and beyond our tithe.
What the Bible Teaches:
- Giving acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have (James 1:17).
- Giving reflects our trust that God will provide for us (Matthew 6:19-24).
- Giving allows us to be active participants in God's work on earth (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).
