What are the principles of giving?
Giving should come from a joyful and willing response to God’s blessings, not out of obligation or expectation. We believe in the biblical principles of tithes and offerings. Our tithes support the church and its ministries, and offerings are above and beyond the tithe. Malachi 3:10 tells us “bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, “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.”
If we’re no longer under the Old Testament law, then why should I give?
Giving isn’t a LAW thing, it’s a GOD thing! While the principles of giving are found in the Old Testament, Jesus demonstrated true generosity by his becoming man, suffering, and dying for our sins. (2 Corinthians 8:9) He also instructed the disciples, telling them that when they gave, not to boast or brag about it. Note that he didn’t tell them “if” they gave, but “when” they did. (Matthew 6:1)
