What is Tithing?

Because of what Jesus has done for us, Christians are called to be generous in every aspect of life. We’re commanded to give generously, cheerfully, and sacrificially to a local church as a first step. A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income. So why is that important, and how does it affect you?

Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.

Bringing our tithe to a local church is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show Him we trust Him, and fight against greed. Giving regularly allows us to be a part of the most important work in life—spreading the good news of Jesus Christ!

If you would like to read more about what the Bible has to say about tithing, check out these passages: Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24, and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.

Why Would I Tithe?

For many, the idea of bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church seems overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe. Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His Word.

We know generosity is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone! We want to know you’re taking your next step in generosity by bringing your full tithe to the church with The 90–Day Tithing Challenge.

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this…and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”

MALACHI 3:10

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 outgive God.

We commit to you that if you tithe for three months and God doesn’t hold true to His promises of blessings, we will refund 100% of your tithe. No questions asked.
