Simply put, 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. Giving is all about worship and so any giving should be an expression of gratitude for God's grace as well as allegiance to His Mission for the church, the community and the world that God has asked us to do.
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. This includes missions giving.
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)
