Giving FAQ

The word “tithe” comes from the Hebrew word meaning tenth. It is the practice of giving 10% of your earnings to the local church. The act of tithing predates the Old Testament, and we see it taught and modeled all throughout the Bible (Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9, Malachi 3:10, Matthew 23:23). Tithe is less about obedience and more about living by faith in God’s Faithfulness and provision.

The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.
