We believe the top competitor to our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate our trust in Him and that He is more important to us than material things.
We believe that Jesus followers should practice unconditional generosity and should be the most generous people on earth (2 Corinthians 9:6) to support worthy causes, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10)!
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.
