A tithe (which means “tenth”) is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income that is to be given back to the local church and is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in the one tangible way that we have to put God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show God we trust Him and fight against greed in our hearts…all while allowing us to be a part of the most important work in life that is spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!
