Give

Why we give back to God

Why do we give on a regular basis? 

The simple answer is we believe that everything we have comes from God in the first place.  We give because we believe that God has entrusted us with resources to be used to make our church and community places of hope, restoration and life.


What does Tithe mean?
The Bible teaches that a guideline for giving is called the tithe
(Lev 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.


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. 

It is our way of refusing to allow our possesions to consume or define us. 
(Matt 6:19-24)


Giving allows us to be active participants in God’s work on earth.  (2Cor 9:6-7)


Giving is a way for us to follow through on what He’s asked us to do.  In the Bible, God tells us to “Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.”  (Malachi 3:8; Prov 3:9)
