We believe the top competitor for our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. We believe you can’t out give God, so when you’re trusting Him with your tithes and offerings, we know that He will bless the rest (Proverbs 3:9,10 and Malachi 3:10 - 12). We think Christians should be the most generous people
(2 Corinthians 9:6) on earth to support worthy causes, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10)!
Next Steps in Giving
Begin to Give
Every adventure begins with a first step. If you have never been a giver, your first step is to give. The amount is not important. Just get started!
Most people give on an every week, every other week, or monthly basis. Choose one of the ways to give (below) and make it a priority to worship God through giving on a regular basis.
Choose a percentage of your income and give that to God first. You might start with 2%, 3%, or even 5%.
Take a Step Toward Tithing
Tithing means giving 10% of your income to God's work. Many people can't jump in at the level of a tithe, but everyone can take a step toward tithing. Determine what percentage of your income you're currently giving, and increase that by 1% of your income each year. In a few short years, you'll be tithing and experiencing the blessings that comes from being a generous giver.
Choose to contribute a full tithe-- 10% of your income to the cause of sharing Jesus with the world.
Some people are financially able to give even more than 10%. We believe that giving should be sacrificial. The amount you give should cause you to alter your lifestyle. If you are giving 10% and you don't even feel it, perhaps it's time to consider increasing your giving to a sacrificial level. Sacrificial givers are a great blessing to the church and are greatly blessed by God.
