Why We Give

whyWeGive min.resizedGiving is an integral part of our relationship with God.
The standard amount of giving required for the church is called tithing - which is giving 10% of our income - Leviticus 27:30.

  • Tithing helps us to acknowledge God as the giver of everything that we receive - James 1:17
  • Tithing reflects that we trust God to provide for us and that we do not let our possessions define or consume us. - Matthew 6:19-24
  • Tithing allows us to be involved in His work here on earth - 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
  • Tithing is a way for us to follow through on what He asked us to do which is to "honor Him with everything we receive; give Him the first and the best" - Malachi 3:8-12; Proverbs 3:9

Offering is over and above our tithe, when we are stirred to give to a cause or situation that God impresses on us.
