Why Give?

Very simply we give because He has given so much! In fact, He has given everything to us. The air we breathe, the water, the food, the ability to get wealth. Why give? Because it just makes sense!


Tithes and Offerings

We recognize that God claims 10 percent (10%) of our income as His own, and so we faithfully return His tithe to the “storehouse” (Mal. 3:10). After tithing, we give offerings according to our blessings and generosity (2 Cor. 7:6-8). There is indication in the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy that regularity and proportionality are good principles to follow. We are, therefore, encouraged that our offerings be a regular percentage of our income. Giving to those in need or to other projects may take place in addition to this. In this way, God has led us to fund the global mission of the church.
