Giving at EBC is simple and secure
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.
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.
An offering is a gift given to a specific need above and beyond our tithe.
Giving acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have (James 1:17).
Giving reflects our trust that God will provide for us (Matthew 6:19-24).
Giving allows us to be active participants in God's work on earth (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).
