WE GIVE because
GOD GAVE FIRST
I AM EMPOWERED TO PROSPER! I am a Tither, and I am a Giver! As the farmer expects the planted seed to grow into a harvest, I also expect my giving to grow into a harvest. I give in thankfulness, I give in expectation and I give in obedience to the Word of God. A tenth of all my earnings is holy unto the Lord! My free-will offering of the remaining 90% is an expression of my thankfulness to God. THIS IS MY CONFESSION!
All About Giving
Tithing is bringing the first 10% of our income back to God. It’s a way to worship God by showing Him that we trust His promises. It’s also a way to protect our hearts from greed. By bringing back to God what is rightfully His, we remind ourselves that everything we have comes from Him. Offerings are any gifts we give over and above the tithe. As we understand how generous God is to us, we’ll find ourselves wanting to be more and more generous toward Him.
A tithe, which just means “tenth” is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income before taxes or anything else comes out.
The Reason for Generosity
Our financial stewardship of the resources God gives us is an immense opportunity for blessing. Although often ignored, this is an area of our lives in which we can faithfully proclaim the gospel.
Generosity Brings Change
Giving of our resources strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly, trusting God with our finances. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.
When you give to Faith Bible Church, you are not just donating to charity. You are sowing in to the kingdom of God and giving to your local community. Every dollar that you sow helps us to do ministry in our local community and around the world through missions and discipleship.
The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. Not having cash or check on hand doesn’t have to hold you back from giving. You can be obedient today by giving online. There is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!
Anything you give beyond 10% is an offering. In Malachi 3:10, God says "Go ahead. I dare you. See if you can out-give me." Beyond the tithe is a chance for you to be extravagantly generous. So go ahead, test and experience God's generosity!
