What Is Tithing?
Some people are surprised to find out many Christians regularly give ten percent of their income to the Lord through their local church. This practice, known as tithing, is anything but new. We see it first in the Old Testament when Abraham gave a tenth of his harvest to the priest Melchizedek (Genesis 14:20). In addition to many other Bible references, we know Jesus affirmed the practice when correcting the religious leaders of His day (Matthew 23:23).
Tithing is still important today. Why? Aside from the scriptures referenced above, we should give as an act of worship in response to what God has done for us, as “the Lord loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7). We should give as a measure of our faith for God says (Malachi 3:10) He “…will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Let me prove it to you!” You see, we take God’s Word seriously.
Because we believe that you cannot outgive God, we want to offer you a risk-free opportunity to experience the joy of stewardship. If you have never tithed or if it’s been a while since you have tithed, we want to challenge you to give ten percent of your income to the Lord through Life Church. In doing so, you will join with us in becoming a partner for the “90 Day Partnership Covenant.”
After three months of faithfully tithing, if you do not believe that God has blessed you for being obedient, we will return the contributions you presented during the 90 day period you selected. Please know that your decisions will not be publicized at any time.
