Why Do We Give?
We believe everything we have comes from God. He has entrusted us to be stewards of these talents, time and treasures. Financial giving to the church and supporting the ministry is simply one way to respond to the gifts He has given us.
What does "tithe" mean?
The Bible teaches that a guideline for giving is called the tithe (Leviticus 27:30). Tithing is giving 10% of what we earn back to God.
What does "offering" mean?
An offering is a gift given to a specific need above and beyond our tithe.
What the bible teaches

Giving reflects our trust that God will provide for us (Matthew 6:19-24).
