GIVING CHANGES LIVES.
We believe that God is into changing lives. He uses His people in the world to accomplish the work of preaching the gospel, feeding the hungry, and caring for those in need.
As we are blessed, we bless.
Giving is an outward expression of gratitude and love that we have for God. We want to worship God with all that we are and all that we have – and this includes our finances. Throughout Scripture we are instructed to give to God from the finances that He has entrusted to us and blessed us with.
Give Now securely.
THREE TYPES OF GIVING
The Bible gives instructions about three categories of giving: Tithes, Offerings, and Alms.
One-tenth of our income given to the local church
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of Hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.”
Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.
“But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass by justice and the love of God. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.”
Giving above and beyond the tithe
2 Corinthians 9:7-8
“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”
ALMS: GIVING TO PEOPLE IN NEED
“But rather give alms of such things as you have; then indeed all things are clean to you.”
