Why We Give

Online Giving

Giving is one of the central themes in the Bible. Jesus talked more about this subject than Heaven, Hell, or prayer. To understand what it means to be a Christ-follower, we must also understand what it means to be a giver.

First Things First

The first fruits of our labor/income belong to God. We find this principle all through God’s Word. Tithing, giving God the first 10% of our income to the local church, is the primary, practical way we acknowledge that God is first. (Proverbs 3:9,10).

Know Giving, Know Life

Giving is the antidote for materialism. While tithing is giving 10% of your income to the local church, an offering is given out of the 90% of your income. Therefore, the offering is giving over and above the tithe. The Bible says that by giving generously, we are able to "take hold of the life that is truly life." You aren’t really living unless you are freely giving. (I Timothy 6:18,19).

The Treasure Test

Giving is the only area in the Bible where God invites us to test Him. Give your tithe, the first 10% of your income, to God and see if He does not open the floodgates of heaven to bless you in ways that you never dreamed possible! (Malachi 3:10).

An Eternal Investment

Even when the stock market's down, you can make an investment that pays dividends for a lifetime and beyond. By investing in the life-changing message of Jesus, you can leverage your money for eternal purposes. (I Timothy 6:7).

Why Give Online

In today's fast paced world, we continue to look toward technology to help bring simplicity to our busy schedules. With just a few clicks of a button, we can now automate this important part of our lives.
