Giving

We believe that every Christian, as a steward of that portion of God’s wealth entrusted to him, is obligated to support his local church financially.  We believe that God has established the tithe as a basis for giving. In addition, every Christian should also give other offerings sacrificially and cheerfully to the support of the church, the relief of those in need, and the spread of the Gospel.  We believe that a Christian relinquishes all rights to direct the use of the tithe or offering once the gift has been made. (Gen:14:20; Prov:3:9-10; Malachi:3:10; Matt:23:23; Acts:4:34-37; 1 Cor:16:2; 2 Cor:9:6-7; Gal:6:6; Eph:4:28; 1 Tim:5:17-18; 1 John:3:17)
