GIVE NOW

Why do we give?

God doesn’t need our money. It’s already His. God chose the church to be the expression of His love. We give so we can take part in the sacrificial love that God extended to us.

What is a tithe?

A tithe means a tenth. God asks his people to give the first 10% of their gross income to the local church. This strategy began in the Old Testament (Gen 14:20, Gen 28:20-22, Deut 26:1-2, 2 Chron 31:4-5) and was reaffirmed by Jesus (Luke 11:42). 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 can’t out give God. We know tithing is a huge step of obedience and not everyone can start at 10%. We encourage you to start by setting up a recurring gift here and witness how God’s promises come alive in your life.
