Why We Give
Tithes and Offerings – The Bible teaches us the baseline for giving is the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything, and we are just giving back a portion that He has first given to us. It is an act of worship that expresses our faith, gratitude and love. Giving above our tithe further demonstrates a generous heart just like God’s heart. "God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:7
