What is Tithing?
A tithe — which is a Bible-Word that just means “tenth-part” — is defined as the first 10% of a person’s gross income, that is to be returned back to God in worship through the local church. Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way, by putting God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show God we trust Him, and fight against greed in our hearts-all while allowing us to be a part of the most important work in life, that is spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!
If you would like to read more about what the Bible has to say about tithing, check out these passages:
Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24 and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.
Why Would I Tithe?
For many, the idea of bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church seems overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe. Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His Word.
We know generosity is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone! We want to know you’re taking your next step in generosity by bringing your full tithe to the church, with The 90–Day Tithing Challenge.
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.
Test me in this...and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so
much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We cannot out give God.
We commit to you, that if you tithe for three months and God doesn’t hold true to His promises of blessings, we will refund 100% of your tithe. No questions asked. Truly.
