Proclaiming the Gospel With Our Finances

Why We Give

The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.

How Much Should You Give

The word “tithe” literally means tenth or 10%. Tithing, or giving ten percent of your income, isn’t merely giving something to God. It’s giving back what was his to begin with. All that we have, or hope to have, comes from him. The Bible says that tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.

“Beyond the tithe” is anything you give beyond 10%. In Malachi 3:10, God says “Go ahead. I dare you. See if you can out-give me.” Beyond the tithe is a chance for you to be extravagantly generous. So go ahead, test and experience God’s generosity!
